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.
Explore hidden gems such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo--about 50 minutes away. Pack the 23rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: expand your understanding of the military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, and pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 25th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
