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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Katariina Seaside Park, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). Pack the 25th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
