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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Heureka and Nuuksio National Park. Kids will enjoy Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Aurlahti Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden, Linden Esplanade, & more). Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church.
