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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Stromforsin ruukki and Mannerheim Museum. Get in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Pyhan Katarinan kirkko (in Karjaa) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 22nd (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 28th (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, look for all kinds of wild species at Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
