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.
Appreciate the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: hike along Santalahti Nature Trail, identify plant and animal life at Riverside Park, steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry.
