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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Hakaniemi Market and Cathedral of Porvoo. Popular historic sites such as Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Pohjolan toimitalo are in your itinerary. Step out of Helsinki to go to Porvoo and see Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, which is approximately 50 minutes away. There's lots more to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, see the interesting displays at Helsinki University Museum (Helsingin Yliopiston Museo), view the masterpieces at Galleria Lapinlahti, and stroll the grounds of Hietaniemi Cemetery.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 7th (Wed) to allow time to travel back home.
