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.
Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Aurlahti Beach. Discover out-of-the-way places like Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Venture out of the city with trips to Cathedral of Porvoo (in Porvoo) and Heureka (in Vantaa). The adventure continues: steep yourself in history at Mannerheim Museum, admire the striking features of Johannes Church, take in the spiritual surroundings of Temppeliaukion Church, and deepen your knowledge of military history at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

To see more things to do, photos, traveler tips, and more tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 71°F, and evening lows to 55°F. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) early enough to travel back home.
