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 the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Nuuksio National Park. Rock Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Arctic Expedition & Kaitalampi) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, and kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach.
