You'll explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nuuksio National Park and Bellevue Beach. Venture out of the city with trips to Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola), Teijo National Park (in Pernio) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 3rd (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Next up on the itinerary: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.
