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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Next up on the itinerary: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To see more things to do, photos, where to stay, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki road trip planning site .
