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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
