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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Sapokka Water Garden). Pack the 17th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: stroll through Sibelius Monument, glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.
