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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto will get you outdoors. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Arctic Expedition, which is approximately 36 minutes away. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and make a trip to Senate Square.
