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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Nuuksio National Park and Katajanokka. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Hakaniemi Market and Brunberg Candy Factory Shop. Venture out of the city with trips to Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka), Heureka (in Vantaa) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town). And it doesn't end there: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, take in the spiritual surroundings of Johannes Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and stop by Academic Bookstore (Akateeminen Kirjakauppa).

For reviews, maps, where to stay, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Netherlands, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
