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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Kotka (Lehman & Linden Esplanade), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). Pack the 14th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: deepen your knowledge of military history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In June, plan for daily highs up to 21°C, and evening lows to 11°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Mon) to allow enough time to travel back home.
