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.
Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fortress of Suomenlinna are in your itinerary. Do some cultural sightseeing at Rock Church and National Museum of Finland. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Jokioinen Museum Railway (in Jokioinen), Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town) and Forssa Museum (in Forssa). Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and steep yourself in history at Hvittrask.

Plan my day in Helsinki using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Poland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
