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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Vantaa Art Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park, Kaitalampi, &more).
