Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Family-friendly places like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The National Museum of Finland will thrill your kids. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Heureka (in Vantaa), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). There's lots more to do: learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
