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.
Attractions like Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park make great kid-friendly stops. For shopping fun, head to Old Market Hall or Galerie Anhava. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Castle Hill (in Porvoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Riverside Park & Linden Esplanade). Pack the 26th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.
