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.
Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja). Pack the 7th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
