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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). Pack the 21st (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, make a trip to Old Market Hall, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and cruise along King's Road.
