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.
We've included these beaches for you: Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. Pack the 22nd (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, look for gifts at Marimekko, perfect your strike at Flamingo Entertainment Centre, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo.
