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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Cathedral of Porvoo in Porvoo--about 48 minutes away. Pack the 16th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
