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 Teijo national park and Stromforsin ruukki. Museum-lovers will get to explore Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and National Museum of Finland. Venture out of the city with trips to Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach), Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park & Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, & more). Spend the 18th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and experience rural life at Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy.
