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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Paavolan Tammi (in Lohjan Island), Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church, Riverside Park, & more) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 27th (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukion Church, take a stroll through Katajanokka, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and hike along Pornaistenniemi Nature Trail.
