Helsinki ©
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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Lehman), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Pack the 17th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 19th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, stroll through Hietaranta Beach, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
