Helsinki ©
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.
Kids will enjoy Linnanmaki Amusement Park and Korkeasaari Zoo. Your inner history buff will appreciate Temppeliaukion Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Bellevue Beach (in Hanko), Inkoon kirkko (in Inkoo) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find traveler tips, where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
