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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Visit Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). And it doesn't end there: get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), get advice or help at The National Library of Finland, stroll around The Esplanadi Park, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
