Loviisa is a municipality and town of inhabitants on the southern coast of Finland. On the 11th (Sat), steep yourself in history at The Runeberg Home, take in the exciting artwork at Nasin Kartanon Galleria, then stop by Riimikko, then don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Loviisan kirkko. Here are some ideas for day two: stroll through Runeberg Park, examine the collection at Porvoo Museum/Holm House, tour the pleasant surroundings at Fredrika Runebergs Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Castle Hill, then take in the spiritual surroundings of Cathedral of Porvoo, and finally revel in the low prices at Brunberg Candy Factory Shop.

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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Hakaniemi Market and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Espoo (Arctic Expedition, Kaitalampi, & more), Tuusula (Lotta Museum & Halosenniemi Museum) and Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Jumbo Shopping Center). Pack the 29th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, view the masterpieces at Galleria Lapinlahti, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and get a taste of the local shopping with Galerie Forsblom.
