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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Old Market Hall and Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa). Popular historic sites such as Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Arboretum Mustila in Elimaki--about 1h 50 min away. There's still lots to do: tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and stop by Artisaani.
