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.
Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For maps, where to stay, photos, and other tourist information, read our Helsinki travel planner .

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 3°C, while at night they dip to -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 8th (Sun) so you can travel back home.
