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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Castle Hill, &more). There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
