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 a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Visiting Nuuksio National Park and Korkeasaari Zoo will get you outdoors. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, explore the galleries of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, relax and rejuvenate at some of the top local wellness centers, and take a stroll through Katajanokka.

To see where to stay, more things to do, maps, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online travel route planner .

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
