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 and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo. Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral are good opportunities to explore the local culture. There's much more to do: hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, look for gifts at Artisaani, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

For traveler tips, photos, other places to visit, and other tourist information, read Helsinki trip planner .

Expect a daytime high around 18°C in May, and nighttime lows around 7°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 25th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
