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.
Take a break from the city and head to Korkeasaari Zoo and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, make a trip to Senate Square, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
