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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Room Escape Games. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo (Castle Hill & Porvoo Old Town). Pack the 19th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.
