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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hameenlinna (Ahvenisto, Palander House, & more), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition) and Porvoo (Söderskärin majakka, Castle Hill, & more). On the 10th (Tue), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Mielakka Ski Center. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
