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 Mannerheim Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna for their historical value. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Nuuksio National Park and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Cathedral of Porvoo in Porvoo--about 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Rock Church, admire the landmark architecture of Johannes Church, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and examine the collection at Design Museum.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 69°F, and evening lows to 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
