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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Vantaa Art Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, hike along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, and tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park.
