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 Sibelius Hall and Old Market Hall. Museum-lovers will appreciate Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Degerby Igor Museum (in Degerby). Pack the 18th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Ullanlinna, stop by Marimekko, pick up some local products at Hietalahti Market, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
