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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Temppeliaukion Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Porvoo (Castle Hill & Riimikko). Spend the 13th (Sun) wandering through the wild on a nature and wildlife tour. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, look for all kinds of wild species at Laajalahti Nature Reserve, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.
