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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Turku Castle (in Turku) and Ahvenisto (in Hameenlinna). And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and make a trip to Senate Square.
