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.
Shop till you drop at Market Square Kauppatori and Galleria Lapinlahti. Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Heureka (in Vantaa), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Sarkanniemi Theme Park (in Tampere). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Korkeasaari Zoo.

For other places to visit, maps, photos, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki sightseeing planner.
