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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Valkmusa National Park. Visiting Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Teijo National Park will get you outdoors. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Santalahti Nature Trail, &more) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and examine the collection at Mannerheim Museum.
