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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Teijo National Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach) and Kotka (Lehman, St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, &more). Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Porvoo Old Town, see the interesting displays at Fagervik Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
