Helsinki ©
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.
Get some cultural insight at Temppeliaukion Church and Katajanokka. Your inner history buff will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Venture out of the city with trips to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Teijo National Park (in Pernio). Spend the 31st (Wed) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
