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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Kansallisgalleria. Get some cultural insight at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Natural History Museum (Luonnontieteellinen Museo). Explore Helsinki's surroundings by going to Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Porvoo Old Town), Aurlahti Beach (in Lohja) and Kotka (Maritime Centre Vellamo, Beach Mansikkalahti, & more). And it doesn't end there: take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, wander the streets of Katajanokka, take in the local highlights with Walking tours, and admire the striking features of Johannes Church.

If you are flying in from Austria, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 25°C in July, and nighttime lows around 15°C. Cap off your sightseeing on the 13th (Sat) early enough to travel back home.
