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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Mannerheim Museum and Kansallisgalleria. You'll enjoy a bit of beach vacationing at Aurlahti Beach and Bellevue Beach. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Heureka (in Vantaa), Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka). And it doesn't end there: learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, contemplate the long history of The Aalto House, get a new perspective on nature at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum.

For more things to do, other places to visit, maps, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki online travel route planner .

In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
