Helsinki

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Ruotsinpyhtaa (Eijas Garden & Stromforsin ruukki), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, Fuksinpuisto Park, & more). Pack the 20th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 31st (Fri) exploring nature at Teijo national park. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
