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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Laajalahti Nature Reserve. Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Arctic Expedition (in Espoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula). There's still lots to do: take a stroll through Katajanokka, take in the exciting artwork at Galerie Anhava, shop like a local with Okra, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach.
