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.
Relax by the water at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Do your shopping at Sibelius Hall and Boss Shop. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 48 minutes away). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take a stroll through Ullanlinna.

To find more things to do, photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 10th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
