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.
Head to Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatorifor some retail therapy. Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach), Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Pack the 5th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurlahti Beach, take a stroll through Stromforsin ruukki, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo.
