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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Get a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Katajanokka. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 26th (Wed) exploring nature at Teijo national park. Spend the 29th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, trek along Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila.
