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 Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. You'll explore and learn at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sibelius Hall (in Lahti), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Lehman). The adventure continues: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and look for gifts at Marimekko.
