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 Mannerheim Museum. Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Pernio (Teijo National Park & Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy). Spend the 16th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 19th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
