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 hidden gems such as Room Escape Games and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Sapokka Water Garden), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 17th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, walk around Sibelius Monument, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
