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 Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Katajanokka, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach, and see the interesting displays at Mannerheim Museum.
