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.
Ullanlinna and Rock Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Pack the 30th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
