Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Get some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Take a break from Vantaa with a short trip to Kamppi Chapel of Silence in Helsinki, about 30 minutes away. Spend the 14th (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach.
