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 a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. You'll explore and learn at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Step out of Helsinki to go to Porvoo and see Porvoo Old Town, which is approximately 50 minutes away. Pack the 6th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument, contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.
