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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 18th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 13th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
