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.
Pack the 15th (Sun) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: contemplate the long history of Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, get engrossed in the history at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, don't miss a visit to Senate Square, and browse the eclectic array of goods at Market Square Kauppatori.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Dublin, Ireland to Helsinki is an approximately 6-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and train; or take a bus. You'll lose 2 hours traveling from Dublin to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. In September in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 19°C during the day and 8°C at night. Cap off your sightseeing on the 15th (Sun) early enough to travel to Koli National Park.
