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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Rock Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Step out of the city life by going to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Kotka (Riverside Park & Beach Mansikkalahti) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 9th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 12th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, delve into the distant past at Raseborg Castle, and get outside with King's Road.
