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 explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Jarvenpaan Taidemuseo. Do your shopping at Market Square Kauppatori and Artisaani. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Espoo (Nuuksio National Park & Arctic Expedition), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Teijo national park (in Pernio). Pack the 15th (Thu) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Rock Church, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, meet the residents at Korkeasaari Zoo, and pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral.

To find photos, other places to visit, and tourist information, you can read our Helsinki tour builder .

If you are flying in from Spain, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) to allow time to travel back home.
