Helsinki

Helsinki ©
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.
Stromforsin ruukki and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Get some historical perspective at Rock Church and Kamppi Chapel of Silence. The adventure continues: soothe aching muscles at some of the top local wellness centers, wander the streets of Ullanlinna, admire the masterpieces at Kansallisgalleria, and kick back and relax at Hietaranta Beach.

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

New Delhi, India to Helsinki is an approximately 10-hour flight. You'll gain 3 hours traveling from New Delhi to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Traveling from New Delhi in December, things will get much colder in Helsinki: highs are around 3°C and lows about -3°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 10th (Mon) so you can go by car to Turku.
