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 Katajanokka and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Aijanniemi Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Castle Hill, & more), Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island) and Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Sapokka Water Garden). Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. And it doesn't end there: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, admire the striking features of The National Library of Finland, stroll around Kaivopuisto, and take in panoramic vistas at Pyynikki Park and Observation Tower.
