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 out of the city life by going to Santalahti Nature Trail and Hietaranta Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Arboretum Mustila. Venture out of the city with trips to Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach) and Kotka (Riverside Park & Linden Esplanade). Pack the 11th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: step into the grandiose world of Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, tour the pleasant surroundings at Helsinki Zoo, and kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach.
