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.
We've included these beaches for you: Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 6th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 9th (Fri) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, sample the fine beverages at Tislaamo - Distillery Bar, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
