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.
Popular historic sites such as Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Valkmusa National Park will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, stop by Marimekko, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall.
