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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach will get you outdoors. Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sibelius Monument. Venture out of the city with trips to Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Kaitalampi), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 31st (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, and identify plant and animal life at Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula).
