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.
Your list of things to see and do now includes Maternal Love Sculpture (Aidinrakkaus), Casino Helsinki, The Three Smiths, and other attractions. Visit Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Appreciate the collections at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Kansallisgalleria. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo (in Jarvenpaa), Brunberg Candy Factory Shop (in Porvoo) and Hiidenkirnut (in Askola). And it doesn't end there: hunt for treasures at Market Square Kauppatori, get a taste of the local shopping with ARTag Gallery, take in the spiritual surroundings of Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre.

For where to stay, photos, ratings, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki visit planner .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 25°C, while at night they dip to 15°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 15th (Mon) to allow enough time to take a bus to Porvoo.
