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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Galerie Anhava will appeal to museum buffs. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hiidenvuori (in Iitti), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Castle Hill) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). Spend the 24th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's more to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria and head outdoors with King's Road.
