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.
Step out of the city life by going to Burn Out City Events and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum for their historical value. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
