We traveled to Seurasaari Island to get away from the city and see a bit of the countryside. Granted, at 30 minutes away, this is not the countryside. However, it feels like it is. I was shocked at how peaceful it was, how relaxing it...More

To reach - find bus number 24, it is the best option. Seurasaari Open air museum is excellent (9 EUR entrance fee but opens at 11am for most of the time). It remains closed after September but check website for details.

It's fun exploring the different buildings and learning about Finnish history and architecture. It's a lovely way to be outdoors on a nice day. I took the 24 bus there and back and it was very easy.
