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.
You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Eijas Garden (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 5th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church.

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

If you are flying in from Denmark, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
