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.
Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). Pack the 17th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and appreciate the history behind Sibelius Monument.

If you are flying in from Estonia, 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 22nd (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
