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.
Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach will get you outdoors. Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Sapokka Water Garden), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). Pack the 29th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at The Esplanadi Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and make a trip to Senate Square.
