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 Fortress of Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's lots more to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October, plan for daily highs up to 48°F, and evening lows to 35°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
