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.
Your inner history buff will appreciate Fortress of Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) capture your imagination. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Lehman) and Raseborg Castle (in Raseborg). Pack the 4th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
