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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Haapasaari Island) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 12th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: steep yourself in history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, stroll around Sibelius Monument, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
