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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa) and Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo). There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, stop by Katajanokka, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church.

To see more things to do, traveler tips, maps, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki road trip planner.
