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.
Visit Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach for some beach relaxation. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Santalahti Nature Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Holy Cross Church (in Parola) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 8th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
