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 out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 31st (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and cruise along King's Road.
