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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach will get you outdoors. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Teijo national park (in Pernio), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenkirnut, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
