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 Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Do some cultural sightseeing at Temppeliaukio Church and The Esplanadi Park. The adventure continues: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the exciting artwork at Galleria Lapinlahti, browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach.

You'll lose 9 hours traveling from Albuquerque to Helsinki due to the time zone difference.
