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 in touch with nature at Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Sibelius Hall and Boss Shop. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
