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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bellevue Beach and Spas & Wellness. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 22nd (Sat) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 24th (Mon) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: stroll through Tulliniemi Nature Path, kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, and get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland.
