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 Temppeliaukio Church. Helsinki Cathedral and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, get to know the resident critters at Korkeasaaren Elaintarha, and make a trip to Senate Square.
