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.
Get outdoors at Bellevue Beach and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Hiidenvuori (in Iitti) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 23rd (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 28th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. Next up on the itinerary: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market.
