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.
Temppeliaukion Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Do your shopping at Market Square Kauppatori and Riimikko. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Linden Esplanade (in Kotka) and Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum (in Janakkala). There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, wander the streets of Katajanokka, get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour, and tour the pleasant surroundings at Aurinkolahti Beach.

To find photos, traveler tips, ratings, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki road trip website .

If you are flying in from India, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In October in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 10°C during the day and 1°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 6th (Sun) to allow time to travel back home.
