Helsinki

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Visit Temppeliaukio Church and Kamppi Chapel of Silence for their historical value. Venture out of the city with trips to Hagen - Ramsholmen - Hogholmen (in Raseborg) and Guide-Matti (in Tammisaari). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Miami, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 13-hour flight. Traveling from Miami to Helsinki, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Miami in June, expect Helsinki to be much colder, temps between 65°F and 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Thu) so you can drive to Kouvola.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
