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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bellevue Beach and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Linden Esplanade). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, make a trip to Porvoo Old Town, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
