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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Hirsala Golf. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) 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. And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, stop by TeeMaa Tea House, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
