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.
Popular historic sites such as Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are in your itinerary. Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria capture your imagination. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Sapokka Water Garden), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Raseborg (Fagervik Church & Raseborg Castle). Pack the 3rd (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, get to know the resident critters at Korkeasaari Zoo, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and stroll around The Esplanadi Park.
