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.
Rock Church and The Esplanadi Park will appeal to history buffs. You'll explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (The Runeberg Home & Cathedral of Porvoo), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Linden Esplanade (in Kotka). Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: take in the architecture and atmosphere at Helsinki Cathedral, explore the world behind art at Museum of Contemporary Art Kiasma, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), and make a trip to Senate Square.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 71°F in July, and nighttime lows around 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
