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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Popular historic sites such as Temppeliaukio Church and The Aalto House are in your itinerary. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Tuusula (Lotta Museum & Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula)), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park & Raseborg Castle). Pack the 28th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
