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 Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Market Square Kauppatori.
