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.
Visiting Aurinkolahti Beach and Pihlajasaari Recreational Park will get you outdoors. Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral will appeal to history buffs. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa), Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Fortress of Suomenlinna, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

If you are flying in from Puerto Rico, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 8th (Thu) early enough to travel back home.
