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 Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Do your shopping at Market Square Kauppatori and Artisaani. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Hanko Water Tower (in Hanko), Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, Linden Esplanade, &more) and The Old Water Tower of Ekenas (in Raseborg). There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and visit Katajanokka.
