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 a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or Artisaani. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Castle Hill (in Porvoo). Spend the 21st (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo national park. Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
