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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Stromforsin ruukki. Do some cultural sightseeing at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Venture out of the city with trips to Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park & Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, & more) and Pernio (Teijo national park & Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy). Spend the 30th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Spend the 4th (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, enjoy the sand and surf at Bellevue Beach, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and browse the range of quality goods at Stockmann's Department Store.
