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 a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Hietaranta Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa), Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 2nd (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and look for gifts at Artisaani.
