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.
Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Visit Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Riverside Park, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 8th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, get interesting insight from Tours, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
