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.
Bring the kids along to Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila. Popular historic sites such as Stromforsin ruukki and Rock Church are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Linden Esplanade, & more) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Pack the 11th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Espoo Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Design Museum, and contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna.
