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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Room Escape Games. Step out of Helsinki to go to Porvoo and see Porvoo Old Town, which is approximately 50 minutes away. Pack the 12th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, make a trip to Senate Square, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
