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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Helsinki Cathedral and The Esplanadi Park. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Castle Hill & Runeberg Park), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Spend the 5th (Sun) exploring nature at Teijo national park. Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's much more to do: wander the streets of Katajanokka, don't miss a visit to Linden Esplanade, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and look for all kinds of wild species at Riverside Park.
