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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Your itinerary includes some good beach time at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Ekenas Museum (in Raseborg) and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and sample the tasty concoctions at Stadin Panimo.
