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.
Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Visit Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
