Helsinki ©
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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Teijo national park and Kansallisgalleria. Visiting Santalahti Nature Trail and Ekenas Archipelago National Park will get you outdoors. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Lehman), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Spend the 13th (Sun) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the masterpieces at Design Museum, and soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers.
