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.
Explore hidden gems such as Stromforsin ruukki and Arboretum Mustila. Step out of the city life by going to Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Pack the 23rd (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.

To find reviews, other places to visit, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 24°C, while at night they dip to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
