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.
Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 24th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
