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.
Kids will enjoy Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Heureka. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sarkanniemi Theme Park (in Tampere), Ahvenisto (in Hameenlinna) and Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo). There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and explore the engaging exhibits at Exhibition Centre WeeGee.
