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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or ARTag Gallery. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). And it doesn't end there: tour the pleasant surroundings at Bellevue Beach, shop like a local with Okra, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church.
