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 Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Hietaranta Beach and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Hvittrask in Kirkkonummi--about 34 minutes away. There's lots more to do: steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, relax and rejuvenate at Yrjonkadun Swimming Hall, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
