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 Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Take a break from the city and head to Aurinkolahti Beach and Nuuksio National Park. There's lots more to do: stroll through Korkeasaari Zoo, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and wander the streets of Ullanlinna.

To find maps, traveler tips, where to stay, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki road trip planning app .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daytime highs in Helsinki are 71°F, while nighttime lows are 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 12th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
