Helsinki

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Room Escape Games and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Riimikko), Vantaa (Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre & Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto) and Kotka (Kotka Sculpture Promenade, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more). Spend the 10th (Wed) exploring nature at Teijo national park. Spend the 11th (Thu) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo.
