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.
For shopping fun, head to Old Market Hall or Sibelius Hall. Step out of the city life by going to Nuuksio National Park and Aurinkolahti Beach. Get out of town with these interesting Helsinki side-trips: Telegrafberget (in Porvoo) and Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla). There's still lots to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, browse the different shops at Kamppi Shopping Centre, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and enjoy the sand and surf at Hietaranta Beach.

To see maps, photos, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki trip planner.

If you are flying in from Slovenia, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. January in Helsinki sees daily highs of -3°C and lows of -9°C at night. Finish your sightseeing early on the 19th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
