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 some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Do some cultural sightseeing at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Bellevue Beach, get a taste of the local shopping with ARTag Gallery, view the masterpieces at Nasin Kartanon Galleria, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
