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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Vantaa Art Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of the city life by going to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto and Nuuksio National Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the striking features of Rock Church, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and explore the world behind art at Alvar Aalto's studio.
