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.
Kids will appreciate attractions like Heureka and Lehman. Step off the beaten path and head to Nuuksio National Park and Room Escape Games. Venture out of the city with trips to Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Maritime Centre Vellamo) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). And it doesn't end there: browse the exhibits of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, walk around Kaivopuisto, expand your understanding of the military at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and admire the striking features of Temppeliaukion Church.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, more things to do, and tourist information, go to the Helsinki travel route planner.

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daytime highs in Helsinki are 69°F, while nighttime lows are 53°F. Cap off your sightseeing on the 16th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
