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.
Attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Korkeasaari Zoo make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Hiidenkirnut (in Askola), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
