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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Turku Castle (in Turku). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station.

To find more things to do, photos, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki online itinerary maker .
