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.
Escape the urban bustle at Bellevue Beach and Aurlahti Beach. Step off the beaten path and head to Arboretum Mustila and Paavolan Tammi. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo) and Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo). Pack the 23rd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, don't miss a visit to Hakaniemi Market, kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach, and meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo.

To see other places to visit, reviews, and more tourist information, read our Helsinki attractions planner.

If you are flying in from Luxembourg, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
