Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma will appeal to museum buffs. Popular historic sites such as Helsinki Cathedral and Temppeliaukio Church are in your itinerary. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, walk around Riverside Park, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
