Vantaa ©
Though technically its own city, Vantaa is considered by many to be a Helsinki suburb, and it is where most visitors land when they fly to Finland.
Museum-lovers will get to explore Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Aurinkolahti Beach. Explore Vantaa's surroundings by going to Helsinki (Ullanlinna, Katajanokka, &more), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo). And it doesn't end there: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church.

For where to stay, ratings, maps, and tourist information, read our Vantaa trip maker site.

Madison, USA to Vantaa is an approximately 15.5-hour combination of flight and car. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Madison to Vantaa due to the time zone difference.
