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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Holy Cross Church (in Parola), Sibelius Center (in Hameenlinna) and Hyvinkään kaupunginmuseo (in Hyvinkaa). Pack the 8th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 17th (Wed) exploring nature at Valkmusa National Park. There's much more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukio Church, make a trip to Senate Square, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For other places to visit, ratings, where to stay, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planner.
