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 a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Ullanlinna. Visit Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum for their historical value. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Kotka (Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Pack the 11th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 12th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Next up on the itinerary: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Stromforsin ruukki, soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
