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 cultural insight at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Helsinki Cathedral. Kids will enjoy Aurinkolahti Beach and Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's still lots to do: admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, don't miss a visit to Old Market Hall, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, and contemplate the long history of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

To see other places to visit, photos, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki attractions planner.

If you are flying in from Croatia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Wed) early enough to travel back home.
