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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Porvoo Old Town. Change things up with a short trip to Teijo national park in Pernio (about 1h 55 min away). There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, steep yourself in history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
