Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka Church (in Kotka), Turku (Pharmacy Museum and Qwensel House, Turku Castle, &more) and Saint Peter and Saint Paul Cathedral (in Hamina). And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and shop like a local with Galleria Lapinlahti.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
