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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo will get you outdoors. Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Lehman (in Kotka). Pack the 21st (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Hietaranta Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, get outside with King's Road, and make a trip to Senate Square.
