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 discover tucked-away gems like Bellevue Beach and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Step out of the city life by going to Santalahti Nature Trail and Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Helsinki: Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja), Stromforsin ruukki (in Ruotsinpyhtaa) and Kotka (Lehman & Linden Esplanade). Pack the 20th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: enjoy the sand and surf at Aurinkolahti Beach, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, admire the striking features of Rock Church, and learn about all things military at Fortress of Suomenlinna.

If you are flying in from Greece, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 27th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
