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 Stand-Up Paddleboarding. Take a break from the city and head to Aurlahti Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka). Pack the 11th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, look for gifts at Digelius Music, and get a taste of the local shopping with Hakaniemi Market.
