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.
Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Hakaniemi Market. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 26th (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and look for all kinds of wild species at Riverside Park.
