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 some historical perspective at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Rock Church. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Kansallisgalleria and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Kotka (Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum & Maritime Centre Vellamo) and Hvittrask (in Kirkkonummi). Pack the 13th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, shop like a local with Hakaniemi Market, and steep yourself in history at Birthplace of Jean Sibelius.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. July in Helsinki sees daily highs of 25°C and lows of 15°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
