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.
Start off your visit on the 18th (Sat): enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, then stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, and then learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna. Keep things going the next day: enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, admire the striking features of Rock Church, then wander the streets of Ullanlinna, and finally pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
