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.
Mannerheim Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo) will appeal to museum buffs. Explore hidden gems such as The Aalto House and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Porvoo Old Town, Runeberg Park, & more), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo). There's still lots to do: explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, admire the striking features of Johannes Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and take in the local highlights with Walking tours.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 71°F during the day and 55°F at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 11th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
