Helsinki

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.
Take a break from the city and head to Aurinkolahti Beach and Korkeasaari Zoo. Visit Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.

To find other places to visit and tourist information, read our Helsinki sightseeing planner .

Expect a daytime high around 18°C in May, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
