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 the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Lahti (Musical Fountain & Sibelius Hall), Porvoo (Fredrika Runebergs Park & Porvoo Old Town) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 8th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, and make a trip to Senate Square.
