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 Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). The adventure continues: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
