Helsinki

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 Porvoo Old Town. Visit Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach for some beach relaxation. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Vantaa (Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto & Heureka) and Runeberg Park (in Porvoo). Pack the 7th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Next up on the itinerary: find your balance on the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), get engrossed in the history at The National Museum of Finland, and admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station.
