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 cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Kotka (Riverside Park & Linden Esplanade) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 15th (Thu) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, take a stroll through Katajanokka, trek along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail, and take in the pleasant sights at Stromforsin ruukki.
