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.
When in Helsinki, make a side trip to see Nuuksio National Park in Espoo, approximately Espoo away. There's much more to do: admire the landmark architecture of Temppeliaukio Church, relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, make a trip to Senate Square, and learn about all things military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna.

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

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates to Helsinki is an approximately 12.5-hour flight. You can also drive. You'll gain 2 hours traveling from Abu Dhabi to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Abu Dhabi in August, expect Helsinki to be much colder, temps between 24°C and 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 18th (Sun) so you can go by car to Tampere.
