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 out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Porvoo (Runeberg Park, Cathedral of Porvoo, &more) and Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Riverside Park, &more). Pack the 5th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.
