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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Suomenlinna Church (Suomenlinnan kirkko), The Esplanadi Park, Itis Shopping Complex, and other attractions. Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum capture your imagination. Do your shopping at Kamppi Shopping Centre and Brunberg Candy Factory Shop. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi), Hiidenkirnut (in Askola) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). Spend the 15th (Mon) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and view the masterpieces at ARTag Gallery.
