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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Stromforsin ruukki and Forssa Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Holy Cross Church (in Parola), Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more). There's lots more to do: admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo, hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, and get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).

For other places to visit, traveler tips, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki itinerary maker .

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 18°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
