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.
Popular historic sites such as Laurinmaki nature and culture area, Crofter's Museum and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are in your itinerary. You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Mannerheim Museum and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo & Art Gallery Merila) and Porvoo (Brunberg Candy Factory Shop, Porvoo Old Town, & more). There's much more to do: take a stroll through Katajanokka, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, see the interesting displays at Finnish Aviation Museum, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

For reviews and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki vacation website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In January, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 26°F, while at night they dip to 17°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
