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.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Mannerheim Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Maritime Centre Vellamo and Cathedral of Porvoo. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & St. Nicholas Orthodox Church), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Ruotsinpyhtaa (Church of Ruotsinpyhtaa & Stromforsin ruukki). Spend the 14th (Wed) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. The adventure continues: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, see the interesting displays at Finnish Aviation Museum, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Helsinki trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
