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.
Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park will appeal to history buffs. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Hietaranta Beach will get you outdoors. There's much more to do: explore the galleries of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, take a stroll through Katajanokka, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

For more things to do, ratings, photos, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki sightseeing planning app .

Minneapolis, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 13.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Minneapolis to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Minneapolis in July, with highs in Helsinki at 71°F and lows at 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 2nd (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
