Helsinki

— 1 night

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Kick off your visit on the 7th (Fri): take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, then admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Temppeliaukio Church, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence. Keep things going the next day: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, then don't miss a visit to Senate Square, then take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and finally stroll through The Esplanadi Park.

For traveler tips, where to stay, ratings, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki holiday builder site.

In May, plan for daily highs up to 18°C, and evening lows to 7°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sat) so you can travel back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
