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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Kotka (Katariina Seaside Park, Sapokka Water Garden, & more) and Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park, Ekenas Old Town, & more). Pack the 18th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.
