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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Bellevue Beach and Hiidenvuori. Escape the urban bustle at Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Riverside Park, & more). Spend the 6th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 2nd (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, make a trip to Porvoo Old Town, explore the striking landscape of Nuuksio National Park, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.
