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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Serena Ski (in Espoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Pack the 15th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: wander the streets of Ullanlinna, enjoy some friendly competition at Flamingo Entertainment Centre, don't miss a visit to The Esplanadi Park, and explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
