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.
Visiting Ekenas Archipelago National Park and Valkmusa National Park will get you outdoors. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Ullanlinna. Go for a jaunt from Helsinki to Hanko to see Bellevue Beach about 1h 35 min away. And it doesn't end there: deepen your knowledge of military history at Fortress of Suomenlinna, meet the residents at Helsinki Zoo, admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church, and admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma.

For other places to visit, ratings, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki sightseeing planner.

If you are flying in from Switzerland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 18°C in May, and nighttime lows around 6°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 11th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
