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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll explore and learn at Kansallisgalleria and Mannerheim Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hyvinkaa Church (in Hyvinkaa), Kotka (Lehman & Linden Esplanade) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 10th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: get into the urban bustle at Sibelius Hall, hunt for treasures at Old Market Hall, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.
