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 Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukio Church and The Esplanadi Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sibelius Hall (in Lahti), Hyvinkaa (Valvilla Factory Museum & Hyvinkaa Church) and Holy Cross Church (in Parola). Pack the 16th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.
