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.
Get some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and National Museum of Finland. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Santalahti Nature Trail) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 24th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 27th (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo national park. There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, stroll through Aurlahti Beach, and cruise along King's Road.
