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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition). Pack the 8th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, stroll through Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, explore the striking landscape at Hiidenkirnut, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For photos, reviews, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki journey planner .
