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.
You'll discover tucked-away gems like Teijo national park and Santalahti Nature Trail. Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Fagervik Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Lehman (in Kotka) and Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path). Spend the 21st (Mon) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: hunt for treasures at Hakaniemi Market, shop like a local with Market Square Kauppatori, stop by Taiga Colors, and admire the striking features of Rock Church.

To find photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and tourist information, use the Helsinki journey planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 60°F in May, and nighttime lows around 43°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
