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.
Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth & Kotka Church). Pack the 20th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
