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.
Step out of the city life by going to Teijo national park and Bellevue Beach. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Aurinkolahti Beach. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Lehman), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 9th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Spend the 10th (Fri) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. And it doesn't end there: deepen your knowledge of military history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, tour the pleasant surroundings at Tulliniemi Nature Path, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 69°F, while at night they dip to 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 10th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
