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.
Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Stockmann's Department Store. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Market Square Kauppatori. Venture out of the city with trips to Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Lahti (Sibelius Hall & Laune Central Park) and Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Cathedral of Porvoo). Pack the 8th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: make a trip to Stromforsin ruukki, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, and look for gifts at Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa).

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 61°F, while at night they dip to 45°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
