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.
Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti for some beach relaxation. Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo national park (in Pernio), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). Spend the 15th (Mon) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. The adventure continues: deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
