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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Visit Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and make a trip to Senate Square.

To find maps, photos, and other tourist information, read our Helsinki vacation planner.
