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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Market Square Kauppatori and Riimikko. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
