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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sibelius Monument. Change things up with a short trip to Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo (about 50 minutes away). Pack the 5th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: browse the exhibits of Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and get a taste of the local shopping with Market Square Kauppatori.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 8°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Thu) to allow time to travel back home.
