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.
Let the collections at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna capture your imagination. Discover out-of-the-way places like Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Santalahti Nature Trail), Hiidenvuori (in Iitti) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Pack the 19th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, and contemplate the long history of Mannerheim Museum.

To see photos, reviews, where to stay, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki road trip planning website .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 23rd (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
