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 outdoors at Teijo national park and Valkmusa National Park. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Lehman, & more), Pyhtaa (Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry & Fagerö Kaunissaari) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Spend the 21st (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's lots more to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, and learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
