Helsinki ©
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.
Take a break from the city and head to Bellevue Beach and Nuuksio National Park. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Runeberg Park (in Porvoo) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). The adventure continues: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take a stroll through Katajanokka, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Bengaluru, India to Helsinki is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry. Due to the time zone difference, you'll gain 3 hours traveling from Bengaluru to Helsinki. Traveling from Bengaluru in August, expect Helsinki to be a bit cooler, temps between 24°C and 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 14th (Wed) so you can travel to Inari.
