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.
Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Castle Hill (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 27th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
