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.
Venture out of the city with trips to Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). There's much more to do: browse the exhibits of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

For reviews, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, read our Helsinki tour itinerary builder .

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
