Helsinki

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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park.

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

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
