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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Willatar) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). And it doesn't end there: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hike along Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, wander the streets of Linden Esplanade, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
