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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Hietaranta Beach. And it doesn't end there: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church.
