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.
Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
