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.
Get some cultural insight at Mannerheim Museum and The Aalto House. Your inner history buff will appreciate Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Johannes Church. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Castle Hill, & more), Vantaa (Heureka & Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Spend the 2nd (Thu) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Katajanokka, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and see the interesting displays at Maritime Centre Vellamo.
