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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Hanko Water Tower) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 9th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. Spend the 7th (Thu) exploring nature at Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.

If you are flying in from Ireland, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In February, daytime highs in Helsinki are 0°C, while nighttime lows are -3°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
