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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach will get you outdoors. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Lahti to see Sibelius Hall about 1h 45 min away. Pack the 6th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and look for gifts at Boss Shop.
