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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo).

And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
