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 Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Linden Esplanade. Get outdoors at Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hiidenvuori (in Iitti), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 7th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 8th (Mon) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. The adventure continues: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take a stroll through Katajanokka, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
