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 some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Head to Hakaniemi Market and Flamingo Entertainment Centrefor plenty of shopping. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 46 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall.
