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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, make a trip to Senate Square, get engrossed in the history at Museum of Worker Housing (Tyovaenasuntomuseo), and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.

For photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, read our Helsinki trip planner.

If you are flying in from United Arab Emirates, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around -3°C in January, and nighttime lows around -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
