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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. Get some cultural insight at Turku Castle and The National Museum of Finland. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. And it doesn't end there: examine the collection at Mannerheim Museum, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, get engrossed in the history at Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, and contemplate the long history of The Aalto House.
