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.
Museum-lovers will appreciate Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Rock Church and Katajanokka are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the exciting artwork at Okra, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, and get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park.

To find photos, reviews, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner.

If you are flying in from South Korea, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 3°C in December, and nighttime lows around -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 1st (Tue) so you can travel back home.
