Helsinki ©
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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Visit Bellevue Beach and Lehman for some beach relaxation. Venture out of the city with trips to Stromforsin Ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Spend the 25th (Sat) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Pack the 19th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, trek along Santalahti Nature Trail, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church.
