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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Rock Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo.
