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.
Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Lehman. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka). Pack the 7th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: browse the exhibits of Fortress of Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, meet the residents at Helsinki Zoo, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
