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 out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Hameenlinna (Hame Castle & Evo Hiking Area), Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, steep yourself in history at The Aalto House, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and see the interesting displays at Mannerheim Museum.
