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 some historical perspective at Mannerheim Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Arboretum Mustila will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Porvoo (Runeberg Park, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more). Spend the 20th (Tue) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Johannes Church.
