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 some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, explore the striking landscape at Hiidenkirnut, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, and wander the streets of Linden Esplanade.
