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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Get some cultural insight at Helsinki Cathedral and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo (Castle Hill & Riimikko), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Spend the 25th (Tue) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. Spend the 28th (Fri) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's still lots to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Stadin Panimo, take in the dramatic natural features at Hiidenkirnut, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
