Helsinki

— 14 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Holy Cross Church (in Parola), Hyvinkään kaupunginmuseo (in Hyvinkaa) and Sibelius Center (in Hameenlinna). Pack the 8th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 17th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and make a trip to Senate Square.
