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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Arboretum Mustila. Get some cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Stromforsin ruukki. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo), Riverside Park (in Kotka) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Pack the 13th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, see the interesting displays at Design Museum, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.

If you are flying in from Singapore, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 16th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
