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.
Rock Church and Fortress of Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: wander the streets of Ullanlinna, head off the coast to Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, tour the pleasant surroundings at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

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

Expect a bit warmer temperatures when traveling from Saariselka in June; daily highs in Helsinki reach 21°C and lows reach 11°C.
