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.
Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with a short trip to Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla (about 1h 50 min away). Pack the 16th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Senate Square, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
