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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ullanlinna. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Korkeasaari Zoo and Aurinkolahti Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Kaitalampi), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, see the interesting displays at Mannerheim Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find photos, traveler tips, more things to do, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki travel route planner.
