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.
Step out of the city life by going to Korkeasaari Zoo and Valkmusa National Park. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Espoo to see Nuuksio National Park about 48 minutes away. Next up on the itinerary: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, stroll through Aurinkolahti Beach, enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

For traveler tips, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki online sightseeing planner .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
