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 Sibelius Monument. Your inner history buff will appreciate Stromforsin ruukki and Holy Cross Church. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (The Runeberg Home, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Kotka Church, & more) and Loviisan kirkko (in Loviisa). Pack the 10th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
