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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Appreciate the collections at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma and The National Museum of Finland. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, head outdoors with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto, hike along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, and identify plant and animal life at Laajalahti Nature Reserve.
