Helsinki ©
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.
Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Hakaniemi Market and Marimekko. Get some historical perspective at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with a short trip to Nuuksio National Park in Espoo (about 46 minutes away). There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, admire the masterpieces at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

To find traveler tips, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In November, plan for daily highs up to 5°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
