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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kokonniemi (in Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 22nd (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
