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.
Take a break from the city and head to Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sibelius Hall and Flamingo Entertainment Center. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and look for gifts at Marimekko.
