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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Teijo national park. Escape the urban bustle at Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Norman Travels. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Paavolan Tammi in Lohjan Island--about 58 minutes away. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum.
