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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Kansallisgalleria and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Lehman), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). There's much more to do: kick back and relax at Aurinkolahti Beach, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, explore the world behind art at Design Museum, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurlahti Beach.

To see photos, ratings, where to stay, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 16th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
