Helsinki

— 7 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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 Helsinki Cathedral. For shopping fun, head to Market Square Kauppatori or TeeMaa Tea House. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hirsala Golf (in Kirkkonummi), Runeberg Park (in Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). 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: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and delve into the lush surroundings at Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area.
