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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Nature & Wildlife Tours will get you outdoors. Change things up with a short trip to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto in Vantaa (about 30 minutes away). Pack the 2nd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
