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 some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and National Museum of Finland will appeal to museum buffs. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. Pack the 18th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
