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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach for some beach relaxation. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Kaitalampi) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and head outdoors with Arctic Expedition.
