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.
Visiting Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila will get you outdoors. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko), Pyhtaa (Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry & Fagerö Kaunissaari) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Spend the 22nd (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 23rd (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the galleries of Fortress of Suomenlinna, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and head off the coast to Lehman.
