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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Tulliniemi Nature Path will get you outdoors. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
