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.
Do your shopping at Stockmann Department Store and Pien Shop & Bar. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nuuksio National Park and The National Museum of Finland. Change things up with a short trip to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa (about 30 minutes away). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
