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.
Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Get some cultural insight at Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 46 minutes away. Pack the 14th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's more to do: glide peacefully along the water with some of the best stand-up paddleboarding in the area.

To find maps, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 14th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
