Helsinki

— 11 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukio Church and Kamppi Chapel of Silence. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hyvinkaa (Valvilla Factory Museum & Hyvinkaa Church), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Holy Cross Church (in Parola). Pack the 16th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, kick back and relax at Aurlahti Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach.
