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.
Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Cathedral of Porvoo are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Step out of Helsinki to go to Porvoo and see Porvoo Old Town, which is approximately 50 minutes away. There's much more to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, and learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo).

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

You can drive from Rauma to Helsinki in 3 hours. Other options are to take a bus; or do a combination of bus and train. In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
