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.
You'll explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Ainola - The Home of Aino and Jean Sibelius. Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arctic Expedition (in Espoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail.
