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 Sibelius Monument. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Sapokka Water Garden), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 10th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori.
