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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture.

Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Lohjan Pyhan Laurin Kirkko the Church of St Lawrence Lohja (in Lohja), Söderskärin majakka (in Porvoo) and Turku (Turku Cathedral & Turku Castle).
