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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Runeberg Park) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 25th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, admire the landmark architecture of The National Library of Finland, and shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market.
