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.

Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 25th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 3rd (Sun) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's lots more to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
