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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Rock Church and Kamppi Chapel of Silence will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Lahti (Musical Fountain & Sibelius Hall) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). Spend the 16th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Pack the 24th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, hunt for treasures at Old Market Hall, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
