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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Do your shopping at Sibelius Hall and Hakaniemi Market. 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: kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Center, and meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo.
