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 out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Do your shopping at Sibelius Hall and Old Market Hall. Change things up with a short trip to Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla (about 1h 50 min away). There's lots more to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
