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.
Take a break from the city and head to Teijo national park and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Discover out-of-the-way places like Stromforsin ruukki and Santalahti Nature Trail. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Kotka (Lehman & Linden Esplanade) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Spend the 15th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, pause for some serene contemplation at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.
