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 discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or Marimekko. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Kaitalampi & Nuuksio National Park), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 23rd (Thu) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, head off the coast to Lehman, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
