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.
Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's lots more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, look for all kinds of wild species at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, tour the pleasant surroundings at Santalahti Nature Trail, and step off the mainland to explore Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth.
