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.
For shopping fun, head to Hakaniemi Market or Boss Shop. Get a sense of the local culture at Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Valkmusa National Park (in Siltakyla) and Nuuksio National Park (in Espoo). Pack the 15th (Mon) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's lots more to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, step off the mainland to explore Pihlajasaari Recreational Park, explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria, and don't miss a visit to Senate Square.

If you are flying in from Israel, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In July, plan for daily highs up to 25°C, and evening lows to 15°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 15th (Mon) to allow time to travel back home.
