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.
Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). Pack the 2nd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.
