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.
Get some cultural insight at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Get in touch with nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Aurinkolahden Uimaranta Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti), Church of Hollola (in Hollola), Orinoro Gorge (in Leppavirta), Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) (in Southern Finland) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja).
