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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Hietaranta Beach. Attractions like Heureka and Aurinkolahti Beach make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Hiidenkirnut (in Askola) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Sinebrychoff Art Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.
