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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto will get you outdoors. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Spas & Wellness. Change things up with a short trip to Kaitalampi in Espoo (about 34 minutes away). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
