Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Escape the urban bustle at Stand-Up Paddleboarding and Bellevue Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Pack the 7th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurlahti Beach, and stop by Ullanlinna.
