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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Nuuksio National Park and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Visiting Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto and Arctic Expedition will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). Spend the 10th (Mon) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Sinebrychoff Art Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
