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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Step out of the city life by going to Arboretum Mustila and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Venture out of the city with trips to Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Castle Hill (in Porvoo). Spend the 30th (Fri) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 1st (Sun) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, identify plant and animal life at Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen, and wander the streets of Katajanokka.
