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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Ankkapurha Culture Park (in Kouvola), Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park, Raseborg Castle, & more) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Katariina Seaside Park, & more). Pack the 18th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
