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 historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and The Esplanadi Park. For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or TeeMaa Tea House. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Hirsala Golf (in Kirkkonummi) and Runeberg Park (in Porvoo). Pack the 21st (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 24th (Sat) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, visit Ullanlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.
