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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Pack the 8th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 10th (Sat) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.
