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.
We've included these beaches for you: Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. You'll visit kid-friendly attractions like Temppeliaukio Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Hiidenkirnut (in Askola) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, get outside with Haagan Alppiruusupuisto, and have some family-friendly fun at Labyrinth Games Room Escape.
