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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Teijo national park (in Pernio), Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 28th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, make a trip to Senate Square, head outdoors with King's Road, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).
