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.
Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma capture your imagination. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Venture out of the city with trips to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Kokonniemi (in Porvoo). Pack the 29th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: take a stroll through Ullanlinna, enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
