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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Bellevue Beach. Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Santalahti Nature Trail and Aurlahti Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Kotka (Kyminlinna Fortress, Kotka Church, & more) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), stroll through Hietaranta Beach, and pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Cross Church.
