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.
Visit Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Sibelius Hall in Lahti, about 1h 45 min away. Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: look for gifts at Marimekko, enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Centre, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and pick up some local products at Hietalahti Market.
