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.
We've included these beaches for you: Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). Pack the 17th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).

For maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner.
