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.
Get some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Centre.
