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.
Bring the kids along to Nuuksio National Park and Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hiidenkirnut (in Askola), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
