Helsinki is to the south of Finland, right beside the Gulf of Finland. If you enjoy beaches, Helsinki is a splendid place to have a drink along the shores of Hietaniemi Beach while you watch the sun go down. If museums and art are your thing then you should definitely head to the Design museum and the Finnish Museum of Photography. Military artefacts from the Second World War are displayed at the Military Museum’s Manage, which is an island fortress built in the 18th century!
The National Museum of Finland portrays Finnish culture and heritage meticulously and is a must-see attraction in Helsinki.
Most of the Finnish people follow the Evangelical Lutheran Church (viz. Protestants) and Helsinki Cathedral is one among the finest, completed in 1852. Uspensky Cathedral is another church in Helsinki following the Orthodox culture. The marvellous architecture and landscaping of Helsinki is a beauty of its own. There are some beautiful buildings adorning the Finnish skyline and some relaxing parks to fill out your evening. A day at the Linnanmäki Amusement Park and the Korkeasaari Zoo would be a day to remember.
