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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To find ratings, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Helsinki holiday planner.
