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.
You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and National Museum of Finland. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Arboretum Mustila. Venture out of the city with trips to Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Spend the 17th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take a memorable tour with Tours, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church.
