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.

Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Next up on the itinerary: kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, look for gifts at Marimekko, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
