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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park, Arctic Expedition, & more) and Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Riverside Park, & more). Pack the 18th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 21st (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.
