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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Arboretum Mustila and Hiidenvuori. Get outdoors at Bellevue Beach and Beach Mansikkalahti. Venture out of the city with trips to Kotka (Linden Esplanade & Riverside Park), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 20th (Sat) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's lots more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, indulge your thirst for a good beer at Stadin Panimo, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

To see traveler tips, other places to visit, and tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip builder app.

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 9°C, and evening lows to 0°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 21st (Sun) to allow enough time to travel back home.
