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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Get some historical perspective at Helsinki Cathedral and Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 3rd (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 4th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), tour the pleasant surroundings at Varissaari - Fort Elisabeth, and take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland.
