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.
Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Step off the beaten path and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Arboretum Mustila. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Next up on the itinerary: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Korkeasaari Zoo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

For other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, use the Helsinki trip site.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In December in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 37°F during the day and 27°F at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
