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.
Head to Hakaniemi Market and Brunberg Candy Factory Shopfor plenty of shopping. Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Adventure Park Zippy. Venture out of the city with trips to Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). Pack the 11th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: look for gifts at Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa), contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach.
