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 off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Riimikko, Porvoo Old Town, & more). Pack the 18th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
