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.
Attractions like Arboretum Mustila and Bellevue Beach make great kid-friendly stops. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Room Escape Games and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre), Pyhan Katarinan kirkko (in Karjaa) and Porvoo (Runeberg Park, Porvoo Old Town, & more). Pack the 19th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenvuori, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church.
