Finland's largest and most populated metropolis, the maritime town of Helsinki boasts varied architecture, a lively cafe culture, and plethora of picturesque natural delights.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding will get you outdoors. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Temppeliaukion Church and Helsinki Cathedral. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

Plan my trip to Helsinki with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Yekaterinburg, Russia to Helsinki is an approximately 7-hour flight. You can also take a train; or drive.
