Helsinki

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 explore the less-touristy side of things at Room Escape Games and Hakaniemi Market. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Kotka Sculpture Promenade, Langinkoski Imperial Fishing Lodge Museum, & more), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). The adventure continues: get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, explore the ancient world of Raseborg Castle, enjoy some diversion at Ahvenisto Activity Park, and pause for some serene contemplation at Pyhtaa Church of Saint Henry.

For photos, other places to visit, traveler tips, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki planning site .

If you are flying in from South Korea, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In January, plan for daily highs up to -3°C, and evening lows to -9°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 21st (Mon) so you can travel back home.
