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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Temppeliaukio Church and Stromforsin ruukki will appeal to history buffs. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Spas (in Tampere). On the 17th (Tue), spend an exhilarating day on the slopes at Mielakka Ski Center. Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, identify plant and animal life at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and cruise along King's Road.
