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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry (in Pyhtaa), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Katariina Seaside Park) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 8th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and pause for some photo ops at Sibelius Monument.

For photos, traveler tips, reviews, and tourist information, use the Helsinki trip itinerary tool .

If you are flying in from Canada, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. August in Helsinki sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
