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 in touch with nature at Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Do your shopping at Old Market Hall and Marimekko. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 48 minutes away. Pack the 30th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.
