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.
Attractions like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church make great kid-friendly stops. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.
