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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Mannerheim Museum. You'll discover tucked-away gems like Nuuksio National Park and Cathedral of Porvoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa) and Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo). Pack the 12th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Johannes Church, and don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market.
