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.
Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Katajanokka. Visit Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). There's much more to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, appreciate the extensive heritage of The Esplanadi Park, and relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers.

If you are flying in from Croatia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
