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.
Shop till you drop at Hakaniemi Market and Market Square Kauppatori. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Bellevue Beach and Santalahti Nature Trail. Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki) and Tulliniemi Nature Path (in Hanko). Pack the 12th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 19°C in September, and nighttime lows around 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 17th (Mon) so you can travel back home.
