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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth & Sapokka Water Garden) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 16th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, admire the natural beauty at Observatory Hill Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
