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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Get some cultural insight at Temppeliaukio Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Serena Ski), Kotka (Lehman, Santalahti Nature Trail, &more) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 3rd (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 17th (Fri) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's much more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and kick your exploration up a notch at Adventure Park Zippy.
