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.
Escape the urban bustle at Nuuksio National Park and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto. Temppeliaukion Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna will appeal to history buffs. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Hanko (Gunnarstrand, Pike's Gut, & more), Raseborg (The Old Water Tower of Ekenas & Fagervik Church) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). The adventure continues: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, look for gifts at Okra, wander the streets of Katajanokka, and get a dose of the wild on a nature and wildlife tour.

To find where to stay, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki travel planning website .

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
