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.
Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Flamingo Entertainment Center. Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Pack the 7th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: admire the striking features of Rock Church, tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo, stop by Boss Shop, and hunt for treasures at Old Market Hall.
