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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sibelius Monument. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Pieni Suklaatehdas, & more) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 9th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: contemplate the long history of Fortress of Suomenlinna, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
