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.
Visit Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Helsinki Cathedral for their historical value. Get a sense of the local culture at Fortress of Suomenlinna and Rock Church. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Teijo national park (in Pernio), Hanko (Bellevue Beach & Tulliniemi Nature Path) and Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo). Spend the 10th (Thu) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 12th (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, enjoy the sand and surf at Santalahti Nature Trail, wander the streets of Linden Esplanade, and head off the coast to Lehman.

To see photos, more things to do, traveler tips, and more tourist information, refer to the Helsinki online trip itinerary planner .

If you are flying in from United States, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In May, daily temperatures in Helsinki can reach 60°F, while at night they dip to 43°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 12th (Sat) to allow enough time to travel back home.
