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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Pyhan Katarinan kirkko (in Karjaa), Hanko (Pike's Gut, Gunnarstrand, & more) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). The adventure continues: get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, see the interesting displays at Helsinki University Museum (Helsingin Yliopiston Museo), and steep yourself in history at Raseborg Castle.
