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.
Do some cultural sightseeing at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Market Square Kauppatori and Kamppi Shopping Centre. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 12th (Mon) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, and walk around The Esplanadi Park.
