Helsinki ©
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.
Relax by the water at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hiidenvuori. Venture out of the city with trips to Castle Hill (in Porvoo), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 3rd (Fri) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

If you are flying in from Czech Republic, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
