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.
Step out of the city life by going to Teijo national park and Lehman. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Helsinki Cathedral. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Riverside Park, & more). Spend the 13th (Mon) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.
