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 these side-trips from Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 11th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach, and meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki sightseeing planning tool .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 18th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
