Helsinki ©
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.
Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Room Escape Games. Change things up with a short trip to Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo (about 50 minutes away). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find photos, traveler tips, where to stay, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from Hungary, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 18°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
