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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Holy Cross Church (in Parola), Ritari-areena (in Haemeenlinna) and Porvoo (Fredrika Runebergs Park & Porvoo Old Town). Pack the 26th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 6th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Fortress of Suomenlinna, make a trip to Senate Square, stroll through The Esplanadi Park, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
