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.
Escape the urban bustle at Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Get a sense of the local culture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with a short trip to Valkmusa National Park in Siltakyla (about 1h 50 min away). There's much more to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

For more things to do, maps, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online road trip planner .

If you are flying in from Oman, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daytime highs in Helsinki are 25°C, while nighttime lows are 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 5th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
