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 Katajanokka are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Visit Temppeliaukio Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (The Runeberg Home & Cathedral of Porvoo), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, and make a trip to Senate Square.
