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 Sapokka Water Garden and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 23rd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
