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.
Bring the kids along to Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Popular historic sites such as Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are in your itinerary. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sibelius Hall in Lahti--about 1h 45 min away. Pack the 14th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, stop by Marimekko, stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall.
