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.
Get outdoors at Nuuksio National Park and Paavolan Tammi. Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Turku (Turku Castle, Bike Rental - by Carfield, & more), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki). Spend the 13th (Tue) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's still lots to do: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and hike along Tulliniemi Nature Path.

To find other places to visit, reviews, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary builder website .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 69°F in August, and nighttime lows around 53°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 16th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel back home.
