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.
Get outdoors at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: get into the urban bustle at Sibelius Hall, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and stop by Marimekko.

To see where to stay, maps, more things to do, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki driving holiday planning site .

If you are flying in from Russia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. December in Helsinki sees daily highs of 3°C and lows of -3°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
