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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Old Market Hall and Marimekko. Step out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Telegrafberget (in Porvoo), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Sibelius Hall (in Lahti). Spend the 18th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Next up on the itinerary: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo.

To find reviews, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip builder site .
