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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Arboretum Mustila and Stromforsin ruukki. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Bellevue Beach (in Hanko) and Kotka (Fuksinpuisto Park, Linden Esplanade, & more). There's still lots to do: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, explore the galleries of Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Belgium, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
