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.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at Rock Church and Sea Fortress Suomenlinna. Give yourself a bit of retail therapy at Market Square Kauppatori and Galleria Lapinlahti. Change things up with a short trip to Teijo national park in Pernio (about 1h 50 min away). Pack the 6th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali), take a stroll through Katajanokka, and play a few rounds at Tapiola Golf.

To see other places to visit, more things to do, maps, and other tourist information, refer to the Helsinki trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from Norway, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 12th (Fri) early enough to catch the train to Vantaa.
