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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, get outside with Arctic Expedition, trek along Santalahti Nature Trail, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
