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.
Step out of the city life by going to Arboretum Mustila and Tulliniemi Nature Path. Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Temppeliaukio Church. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 17th (Thu) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Next up on the itinerary: admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, steep yourself in history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, learn more about the world around you at Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo), and browse the eclectic array of goods at Hakaniemi Market.

Ljubljana, Slovenia to Helsinki is an approximately 6- hour flight. You can also do a combination of shuttle and flight; or drive. You'll lose 1 hour traveling from Ljubljana to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Plan for a bit cooler temperatures traveling from Ljubljana in January, with highs in Helsinki at -3°C and lows at -9°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 19th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
