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.
Visit Bellevue Beach and Aurinkolahti Beach for some beach relaxation. Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to history buffs. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Pieni Suklaatehdas, & more), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Kotka (Beach Mansikkalahti & Linden Esplanade). Pack the 27th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and explore the different monuments and memorials at Hietaniemi Cemetery.
