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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Vantaa Art Museum. Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Pernio (Teijo national park & Ruukin kehräämö ja puoti Oy) and Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition). Spend the 11th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take a memorable drive along King's Road, look for all kinds of wild species at Riverside Park, and take a peaceful walk through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area.

To see reviews, where to stay, other places to visit, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki attractions planning site .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
