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 Ullanlinna are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Room Escape Games. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa). Pack the 30th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: wander the streets of Katajanokka, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, play a few rounds at Tapiola Golf, and enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach.
