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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Let the collections at Kansallisgalleria and National Museum of Finland capture your imagination. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 46 minutes away. Pack the 19th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach.
