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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Helsinki Cathedral. Get in touch with nature at Teijo national park and Valkmusa National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Spend the 16th (Sun) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, tour the pleasant surroundings at Bellevue Beach, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
