Helsinki ©
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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Tuusula Church (in Tuusula), Porvoo (Castle Hill, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Pack the 14th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 16th (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, hike along Tulliniemi Nature Path, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
