On any given day, it’s possible to enjoy the great outdoors in one of the city’s parks, to catch a festival, to learn an instrument, to take a daring dip in icy water or to partake in one of the famous saunas that the city is known for. It’s also a place where travelers like you find an excellent jumping-off point for adventures in neighboring cities (or even countries).
