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.
Escape the urban bustle at Korkeasaari Zoo and Aurinkolahti Beach. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Castle Hill) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 4th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, make a trip to The Esplanadi Park, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).
