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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 18th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Sibelius Monument, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.
