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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach will get you outdoors. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 30th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, cruise along King's Road, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
