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.
Pack the 8th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the landmark architecture of Rock Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and make a trip to Senate Square.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki day trip website .

Islamabad, Pakistan to Helsinki is an approximately 18-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Islamabad to Helsinki. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Islamabad in May, with highs in Helsinki at 18°C and lows at 7°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 9th (Thu) to allow time to travel to Puumala.
