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.
When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately Espoo away. Pack the 4th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori.
