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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). Pack the 16th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 23rd (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's much more to do: expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, stroll through The Esplanadi Park, make a trip to Senate Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
