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: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Sapokka Water Garden (in Kotka) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 24th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, appreciate the history behind Sibelius Monument, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and make a trip to Senate Square.
