Helsinki

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 Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Discover out-of-the-way places like Arboretum Mustila and Porvoo Old Town. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Riverside Park & Santalahti Nature Trail). Pack the 12th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, and meet the residents at Helsinki Zoo.
