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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Temppeliaukion Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Raseborg (The Old Water Tower of Ekenas, Raseborg Castle, & more), Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition) and Hanko (Hanko Museum, Hanko Water Tower, & more). Pack the 4th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori.

To see other places to visit, reviews, photos, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip planning site .

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
