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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). Pack the 25th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, perfect your strike at Flamingo Entertainment Centre, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
