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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Kids will appreciate attractions like Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Ahvenisto Activity Park (in Haemeenlinna). There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, and look for gifts at Artisaani.
