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.
Visit Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali) for their historical value. Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Ullanlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Lehman (in Kotka). Pack the 16th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Fortress of Suomenlinna, stroll through Hietaranta Beach, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, and perfect your strike at Flamingo Entertainment Centre.

To find reviews, other places to visit, ratings, and more tourist information, use the Helsinki travel planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to 60°F, and evening lows to 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
