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.
Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach for some beach relaxation. Temppeliaukion Church and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Pack the 9th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki. The adventure continues: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
