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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum will appeal to museum buffs. Discover out-of-the-way places like Arboretum Mustila and Lehman. Venture out of the city with trips to Teijo National Park (in Pernio), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Spend the 10th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 12th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, explore the striking landscape of Valkmusa National Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Santalahti Nature Trail, and take a stroll through Linden Esplanade.
