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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 28th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
