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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Discover out-of-the-way places like Teijo national park and Valkmusa National Park. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Raseborg (Ekenas Archipelago National Park & Raseborg Castle), Kotka (Santalahti Nature Trail & Kotka Church) and Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa). There's lots more to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take a peaceful walk through Norman Travels.

To find maps, ratings, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki attractions planning website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 60°F in May, and nighttime lows around 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 29th (Wed) to allow enough time to travel back home.
