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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Aleksis Kiven syntymakoti (in Nurmijarvi) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & The Devil's Stairs). Pack the 24th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, appreciate the history behind Sibelius Monument, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

To see maps, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read our Helsinki vacation planning website .

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 3°C, while at night they dip to -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
