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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Old Market Hall. Take a break from Helsinki with a short trip to Porvoo Old Town in Porvoo, about 48 minutes away. Pack the 22nd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: step into the grandiose world of Fortress of Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Finland, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma (Nykytaiteen Museo).

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 23rd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
