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.
Let the collections at Fortress of Suomenlinna and National Museum of Finland capture your imagination. Get some historical perspective at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo), Suomen Lasimuseo (The Finnish Glass Museum) (in Riihimaki) and Hameenlinnan Kaupungin Raatihuone (in Haemeenlinna). Pack the 24th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 30th (Sun) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 61°F during the day and 45°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
