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 Hietaranta Beach. Katajanokka and Kansallisgalleria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa--about 30 minutes away. There's much more to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Temppeliaukio Church, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaaren Elaintarha, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.

To find traveler tips, other places to visit, photos, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki itinerary planner.
