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.
Attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and The Swimming Stadium make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 46 minutes away). 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 pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church.
