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 out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. Pack the 6th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach.
