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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, have some family-friendly fun at True VR, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
