Helsinki

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.
Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and wander the streets of Katajanokka.

To find ratings, where to stay, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Helsinki day trip planning website.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 20th (Sun) early enough to 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."
