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.
Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma capture your imagination. You'll get in some beach time at Aurinkolahti Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Santalahti Nature Trail), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 9th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
