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.
Head to Sibelius Hall and Hakaniemi Marketfor plenty of shopping. Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Valkmusa National Park. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, look for gifts at Boss Shop, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
