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.
Turku Castle and Mannerheim Museum will appeal to history buffs. Do some cultural sightseeing at Turku Cathedral and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Laurinmaki Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala) and Birthplace of Jean Sibelius (in Hameenlinna). There's much more to do: learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, get engrossed in the history at Aboa Vetus & Ars Nova, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Tampereen Tuomiokirkko.

If you are flying in from Sweden, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. January in Helsinki sees daily highs of -3°C and lows of -9°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 22nd (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
