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.
Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Hiidenkirnut. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo national park (in Pernio), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Castle Hill (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
