Helsinki ©
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.
Visit Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church for their historical value. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Porvoo (Castle Hill & Riimikko). There's much more to do: get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, look for all kinds of wild species at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenkirnut, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

For maps, other places to visit, more things to do, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki travel planning website.
