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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Kotka (Linden Esplanade, Sapokka Water Garden, & more), Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg) and Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Castle Hill). Pack the 13th (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: expand your understanding of the military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.

For traveler tips, reviews, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki tour planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 69°F in August, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 17th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
