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.
Escape the urban bustle at Teijo national park and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Santalahti Nature Trail. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 18th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Rock Church, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, cruise along King's Road, and learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.
