Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The National Museum of Finland. Get a sense of the local culture at Temppeliaukio Church and The Esplanadi Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
