Situated between Sweden and Russia across the water from Estonia is the Nordic country of Finland. This modern country is celebrated by tourists sightseeing for its breathtaking landscapes and tranquil natural beauty. Finland is laden with picturesque lakes, extensive forested areas and a very unique archipelago, making it one of the most visually stunning countries in all of Europe.

Finland is not only remarkably beautiful; it is also a vibrant and sophisticated country with an advanced technology industry and a high standard of living for its residents. A visit to Finland will allow travellers a chance to explore the country's rich culture and proud culture.

Finland's capital city, Helsinki, is located in the southern part of the country and is the international gateway into the Nordic region. Helsinki is also the cultural heart of the country and offers a number of memorable Finland tourist attractions and tours.

Temppeliaukio Church is undeniably one of the city's most visited sites. The 'Church of the Rock', as it is also called, is an intriguing structure that was cut out of a natural solid rock formation. One of the most amazing design elements of the church is its colossal roof, which has a diameter of 23 metres and is decorated with 14 miles of copper stripping.

Another popular attraction in Helsinki is the Kauppatori (market square). This vibrant and bustling market is encircled by 19th century buildings that are always filled with activity as shoppers can purchase just about everything under the sun here. This area also has some wonderful trails for leisurely walks or fun-filled hiking and trekking excursions.

Another area worth visiting is Suomenlinna Island, a great Finland holiday destination. Designated as a World Heritage site by UNESCO, the enchanting sea fortress offers a serene holiday amidst absolutely stunning surroundings. If visiting Tampere, you will not want to miss the Aleksanterin Kirkko, a neo-Gothic church that dates back to 1880. The focal point of this inspired religious structure is the brilliant altarpiece painted by Aleksandra Saltin in 1883.

Rauma, also on the World Heritage list, is a charming town that will give visitors a chance to step back in time to a bygone era. The town is filled with wonderful wooden houses and craftsmen and artisans working in centuries-old studios. Notable attractions in Rauma include a number of museums and a Franciscan Church that dates from the 15th century.

Turku, the oldest city in Finland full of Finland culture, was once a thriving capital city but has since been ravished by fires. The city's medieval quarter, Luostarinmäki, is still alive today and houses a number of historic treasures, such as the 13th century Turku cathedral and the celebrated Turku Castle, built in 1280.
