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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukion Church. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bellevue Beach and Arboretum Mustila. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko) and Riverside Park (in Kotka). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Helsinki Zoo, browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

If you are flying in from Hungary, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around -3°C in January, and nighttime lows around -9°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
