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.
Start off your visit on the 21st (Mon): browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market, then test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, then explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and finally stop by Artisaani. Here are some ideas for day two: learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), then browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, then get curious at Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre, and finally don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In January in Helsinki, expect temperatures between -3°C during the day and -9°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 22nd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
