Helsinki

— 4 nights

Daughter of the Baltic

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.
Helsinki is known for historic sites, shopping, and museums. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

Minsk, Belarus to Helsinki is an approximately 4.5-hour flight. You can also drive; or take a train. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 1 hour traveling from Minsk to Helsinki. When traveling from Minsk in April, plan for a bit cooler days and about the same nights in Helsinki: temperatures range from 9°C by day to 0°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 24th (Sat) to allow enough time to fly back home.

Land of a Thousand Lakes
Combining vast Nordic wilderness with bustling hip cities, Finland offers something to delight and surprise all its visitors. Generally speaking, the northern region is populated by unspoiled pine forests, glistening blue lakes, and a plethora of interesting wildlife, while the south is home to the nation's thoroughly modern urban centers. Although Finland holds the title of most sparsely populated county in the European Union, restaurants, bars, and nightclubs in cities like Helsinki, Espoo, and Tampere are often packed with fun-loving Finns. Do bring your dancing shoes, but don't forget your hiking boots either--you'll want to make use of the country's 37 national parks, spread throughout this "Land of a Thousand Lakes."
