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.

Pack the 29th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, make a splash at The Swimming Stadium, and meet the residents at Korkeasaaren Elaintarha.
