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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Teijo national park. Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Lehman) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Spend the 22nd (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 24th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market, stop by Marimekko, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
