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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki University Museum (Helsingin Yliopiston Museo) will appeal to museum buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, delve into the lush surroundings at Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, and wander the streets of Linden Esplanade.
