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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Lehman, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more), Turku (Turku Cathedral, Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, & more) and Naantali Old Town (in Naantali). Pack the 16th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Sarkanniemi Theme Park. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, test your problem-solving skills at Labyrinth Games Room Escape, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
