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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church will appeal to history buffs. Visiting Bellevue Beach and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area will get you outdoors. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Hiidenkirnut (in Askola), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 15th (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 18th (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, appreciate the extensive heritage of Castle Hill, go for a walk through Linden Esplanade, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.
