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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Head to Hakaniemi Market and Okrafor some retail therapy. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa). Spend the 6th (Wed) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. There's much more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Bellevue Beach, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and shop like a local with Galerie Anhava.
