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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 46 minutes away). Pack the 18th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), see the interesting displays at Vantaa Art Museum, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
