Reserving a car hire at Vantaa Airport gives you the freedom to really explore this beautiful region with its contrast of city, country and coast. A stroll through the streets of Vantaa reveals a vivid contrast between its medieval past such as the Church of St Lawrence and the strikingly modern architecture and exhibits at the Artsi Art Museum. The Finnish Aviation Museum is just a short drive out of town and the perfect destination for discovering everything to do with flying. Take the short drive to Helsinki in your car hire from Vantaa Airport and spend a day exploring this fascinating capital city. A must-see destination is the UNESCO World Heritage Site of the Suomenlinna Fort. Today this huge 18th-century fort is home to houses, fortifications, cannons and catacombs. The young at heart of all ages will enjoy spending a few hours at the Linnanmäki Park, the oldest amusement park in the country. It is famous for its wooden roller coaster. About an hour's drive inland from your holiday base are Nuuksio National Park and Lake Tuusulanjärvi. The National Park is full of untamed wilderness to explore while the lake area has house museums to many important Finnish writers and artists, such as Jean Sibelius.
