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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get in touch with nature at Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). The adventure continues: browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, look for gifts at Boss Shop, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.
