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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Castle Hill), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, identify plant and animal life at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
