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.
Kids will enjoy Bellevue Beach and Arboretum Mustila. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). Pack the 12th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.
