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 Hietaranta Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ullanlinna. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
