This place could be far away from the city but is in fact quite close and well worth going too. Bus 24 goes there from the centre of town in 20 minutes or so. Only a few of the buildings were open but fortunately the church was among them. It is by far the most interesting and beautiful building on... More

We stopped here as part of an organized Helsinki highlights tour and brought 2 preschool-aged kids. The kids enjoyed running around outdoors and feeding the birds and squirrels. In fact, it was the highlight of our trip. We toured the inside of the buildings as well. It was nice to visit this place as part of a tour because we... More

This place is great for a half day outing! The small island is like going to the countryside in the middle of the city. Small birds eat straight from your hand and squirrels too! Ducks to feed, icecream shacks and a nice café or bring a piknik to enjoy on the seaside cliffs. It's a lush green island with good... More

Try to get to Seurasaari at midsummer evening. The town of Helsinki will be deserted save for the tourists. Seurasaari comes alive with the traditional kokko (bonfire). There will be a young couple in a traditional long boat who are getting married at midsummer. There is lots of tradition and romance at this wonderful event and it all happens on... More

This is an island in helsinki. Quite beautiful and calm. Nice place for picnic. Has old houses and cottages which depict how fiinish people lived century ago. Its not a must visit place but if you have time and want to relax and enjoy then you should visit.

We enjoyed the scenic surroundings and gained an interesting insight in some Finnish History and culture. Best Korvapuustis for miles in the summer Cafe. Easy to reach by public bus from the main railway station.

If you happen to be visiting Helsinki during Easter, be sure to visit the bonfire in Seurasaari island. According to an old Finnish tradition, witches and trolls are believed to be busy on that day and bonfires are lit to scare them away. Children enjoy themselves with activities, travelers roast sausages, they drink hot beverages while getting warmer near fire.... More

It's quite a nice forested island, just far enough from the city to be quiet, and seems popular with Finns going for jogs, walks or picnics. However, tourists also get to see a bunch of historic wood buildings that have been moved here. You can walk around the island and look at the outside of the buildings for free but... More

If you have few extra hours and want to experience Finnish nature and country side, the easiest way is to go to Seurasaari, which is a small island not far from center and accessible via a walking bridge. For history enthusiasts the island offers a lot of Finnish history in the form of an outdoor museum as many old wooden... More

Take at least a two hours trip to this beautiful island with tens of historic buildings, a beach (nice place for a picnic!) and an excellent restaurant. Dogs are allowed :)
