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 Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Mannerheim Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Kotka (Riverside Park, Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, &more) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 6th (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 9th (Mon) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, admire the landmark architecture of Cathedral of Porvoo, explore the wealth of natural beauty at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
