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.
Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, make a trip to Senate Square, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
