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.
You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurinkolahti Beach and Hietaranta Beach. Do your shopping at Old Market Hall and Marimekko. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Kotka (St. Nicholas Orthodox Church & Lehman), Sibelius Hall (in Lahti) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, get to know the fascinating history of The Esplanadi Park, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church.

To find traveler tips, photos, ratings, and other tourist information, you can read our Helsinki itinerary planning app.

In September, plan for daily highs up to 19°C, and evening lows to 8°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 27th (Thu) to allow enough time to travel back home.
