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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Your inner history buff will appreciate Helsinki Cathedral and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, about 48 minutes away. Pack the 19th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach.
