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.
Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 46 minutes away). Pack the 17th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December, daytime highs in Helsinki are 3°C, while nighttime lows are -3°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 17th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
