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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Aurinkolahti Beach. Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Digelius Music. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka). Pack the 11th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.
