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.
Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Next up on the itinerary: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, admire the striking features of Rock Church, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
