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.

There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurlahti Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church.
