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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Evo Hiking Area. Fortress of Suomenlinna and National Museum of Finland will appeal to museum buffs. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Tuusulanjarvi (Lake Tuusula) (in Tuusula), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). Spend the 30th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Pack the 21st (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's much more to do: identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila, pause for some serene contemplation at Holy Cross Church, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church.

To find maps, more things to do, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki travel planning site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
