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.
Let the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Design Museum capture your imagination. Kids will appreciate attractions like Nuuksio National Park and Teijo national park. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Riverside Park), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Pack the 2nd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: wander the streets of Katajanokka, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town.
