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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Evo Hiking Area (in Hameenlinna), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Heureka (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and stop by Minna Parikka.
