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 Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mannerheim Museum and Maritime Centre Vellamo. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala). And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Temppeliaukion Church, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), take an in-depth tour of The National Museum of Finland, and admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria.

If you are flying in from Hong Kong, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. September in Helsinki sees daily highs of 19°C and lows of 8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
