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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Temppeliaukion Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Castle Hill. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 17th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's lots more to do: get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
