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.
Step out of the city life by going to Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Arboretum Mustila. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Haapasaari Island (in Kotka), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Nuuksio National Park (Nuuksion Kansallispuisto) (in Southern Finland). There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukion Church, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Helsinki Zoo, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
