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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park will get you outdoors. For shopping fun, head to Sibelius Hall or Marimekko. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Kokonniemi (in Porvoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.
