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.
Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach for some beach relaxation. Museum-lovers will get to explore Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Ungern and Rosen Fortresses (in Loviisa). And it doesn't end there: meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and head off the coast to Lehman.
