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.
You'll explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Santalahti Nature Trail (in Kotka) and Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Spend the 12th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 14th (Tue) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, explore the world behind art at Design Museum, and trek along Tulliniemi Nature Path.
