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.
Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Galerie Forsblom. Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Linden Esplanade. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Castle Hill (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 11th (Mon) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, view the masterpieces at Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.
