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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, stop by Katajanokka, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.

For more things to do, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online tour planner.
