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.
Get in touch with nature at Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Porvoo (Castle Hill, Cathedral of Porvoo, & more), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Riverside Park) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

For maps, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki online travel planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daytime highs in Helsinki are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
