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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Get some cultural insight at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 11th (Tue) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, see the interesting displays at Design Museum, explore the ancient world of Raseborg Castle, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
