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.
Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Turku Castle (in Turku), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Pyynikki's Swim Hall (in Tampere). The adventure continues: step into the grandiose world of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence, admire the striking features of Helsinki Central Railway Station, and take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral.

To see maps, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 37°F in December, and nighttime lows around 27°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 29th (Sun) early enough to travel back home.
