Helsinki

— 3 nights

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.
Temppeliaukio Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and take in the views from Rakkauden Silta.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Metzingen, Germany to Helsinki is an approximately 7-hour combination of car and flight. You can also drive. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 1 hour traveling from Metzingen to Helsinki.

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."
