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.
Visit Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Head to Market Square Kauppatori and Kamppi Shopping Centrefor some retail therapy. Step out of Helsinki to go to Espoo and see Nuuksio National Park, which is approximately 46 minutes away. There's lots more to do: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, stop by Liopro Finland - Handmade Souvenir, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To see more things to do, maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip app .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, 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 1st (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
