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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Linden Esplanade) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 2nd (Sun) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenkirnut, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and cruise along King's Road.
