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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ullanlinna. Do some cultural sightseeing at Katajanokka and Cathedral of Porvoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo (Fredrika Runebergs Park & Porvoo Old Town), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula). Pack the 26th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, and indulge your thirst for a good beer at Stadin Panimo.
