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.
For shopping fun, head to Sibelius Hall or Boss Shop. Get outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Kokonniemi (in Porvoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 15th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: step into the grandiose world of Fortress of Suomenlinna, look for gifts at Marimekko, browse the eclectic array of goods at Old Market Hall, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.
