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.
Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Pyynikki's Swim Hall (in Tampere), Turku (Turku Castle & Bike Rental - by Carfield) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, admire the landmark architecture of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki road trip planning website.
