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 in touch with nature at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Step out of Helsinki with an excursion to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo--about 48 minutes away. The adventure continues: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.

For other places to visit, reviews, maps, and more tourist information, use the Helsinki road trip planner.

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
