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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Linnanmaki Amusement Park and The Swimming Stadium. There's much more to do: explore the historical opulence of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, learn about wildlife with up-close encounters at Korkeasaari Zoo, make a trip to Senate Square, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church.

To find photos, where to stay, maps, and more tourist information, use the Helsinki trip itinerary planning tool.

Dubai, United Arab Emirates to Helsinki is an approximately 9.5- hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and ferry; or drive. The time zone difference moving from Gulf Standard Time (GST) to Eastern European Standard Time (EET) is minus 2 hours.
