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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Haemeenlinna (Ahvenisto Activity Park & Birthplace of Jean Sibelius) and Parola Tank Museum (in Parola). Pack the 23rd (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
