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 off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Ekenas Museum. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Parola (Holy Cross Church & Parola Tank Museum). And it doesn't end there: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, pause for some serene contemplation at Kallio Church, shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

To see more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki travel planner.

If you are flying in from Poland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In March, plan for daily highs up to 3°C, and evening lows to -5°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 25th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
