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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, stop by Marimekko Oyj, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
