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.
Visiting Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path will get you outdoors. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bellevue Beach and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Kotka (Lehman, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Pack the 14th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's much more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market, browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, get into the urban bustle at Sibelius Hall, and make a trip to Porvoo Old Town.
