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.
Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Family-friendly places like Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo will thrill your kids. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Hietaranta Beach, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and tour or see a game at Olympic Stadium (Olympiastadion).
