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.
Get some historical perspective at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma will appeal to museum buffs. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Sibelius Hall in Lahti--about 1h 45 min away. Next up on the itinerary: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, look for gifts at Marimekko, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and tour the pleasant surroundings at Hietaranta Beach.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Helsinki trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
