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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). There's much more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for all kinds of wild species at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, and hike along Uutelan luontopolku.
