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.
Bring the kids along to Bellevue Beach and Lehman. Relax by the water at Aijanniemi Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Castle Hill, & more) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Spend the 19th (Mon) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
