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.
Get outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Get some historical perspective at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 6th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, make a trip to Senate Square, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.
