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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Arboretum Mustila and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Katajanokka, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bellevue Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church.
