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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Korkeasaari Zoo. Pack the 2nd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park.
