Helsinki

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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Room Escape Games and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town & Runeberg Park), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Fuksinpuisto Park, Santalahti Nature Trail, & more). Spend the 30th (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo national park. Pack the 2nd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, see the interesting displays at Ekenas Museum, and surround yourself with nature on a nature and wildlife tour.

For photos, reviews, maps, and tourist information, use the Helsinki trip itinerary site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 47°F in April, and nighttime lows around 32°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 6th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
