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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Bellevue Beach and Spas & Wellness. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Santalahti Nature Trail and Riverside Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Spend the 27th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Pack the 20th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
