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.
You'll explore the less-touristy side of things at Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Katajanokka. You'll explore and learn at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Fagervik Museum. Venture out of the city with trips to Linden Esplanade (in Kotka), Porvoo Old Town (in Porvoo) and Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa). Spend the 25th (Sun) exploring nature at Nuuksio National Park. Spend the 27th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. There's still lots to do: kick back and relax at Bellevue Beach, take in the spiritual surroundings of Rock Church, stroll through Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area, and identify plant and animal life at Arboretum Mustila.

For ratings, other places to visit, traveler tips, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki day trip website .

If you are flying in from Turkey, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. Expect a daytime high around 24°C in August, and nighttime lows around 13°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 30th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
