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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Visit Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Spend the 20th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, hike along Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.
