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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Sapokka Water Garden and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Riverside Park, &more), Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Runeberg Park, &more) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 19th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in nature's colorful creations at Observatory Hill Park, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
