Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Attractions like Temppeliaukio Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum make great kid-friendly stops. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Castle Hill (in Porvoo). Pack the 4th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: visit Katajanokka, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the resident critters at Korkeasaaren Elaintarha, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.
