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.
Step out of the city life by going to Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. For shopping fun, head to Sibelius Hall or Boss Shop. When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately 46 minutes away. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, stop by Marimekko, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and relax and rejuvenate at Flamingo Entertainment Center.

To find other places to visit, maps, reviews, and more tourist information, use the Helsinki trip itinerary site .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 37°F in December, and nighttime lows around 27°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Fri) so you can travel back home.
