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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park. Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: stroll through Hietaranta Beach, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
