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 enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Lehman. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Sibelius Park, & more), Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more). Spend the 14th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. The adventure continues: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, stroll around Kaivopuisto, stroll through Hietaranta Beach, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.
