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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step off the beaten path and head to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail, Linden Esplanade, & more). Spend the 6th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, take a stroll through Katajanokka, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.
