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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Kotka (Riverside Park & Sapokka Water Garden) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). Pack the 23rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market, and make a trip to Market Square Kauppatori.
