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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Temppeliaukion Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 6th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori, take in the exciting artwork at Galerie Forsblom, browse the different shops at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
