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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Lehman) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 4th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.
