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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Inkoo (Inkoon kirkko & Fagervik Museum). Spend the 5th (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 13th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, kick back and relax at Beach Mansikkalahti, identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, and hike along Tulliniemi Nature Path.
