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.
Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Teijo National Park. Your inner history buff will appreciate Rock Church and Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali). You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola). There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, hike along Santalahti Nature Trail, admire nature's wide array of creatures at Korkeasaari Zoo, and take a memorable drive along King's Road.

For traveler tips, other places to visit, more things to do, and more tourist information, you can read our Helsinki trip planner .

In May in Helsinki, expect temperatures between 18°C during the day and 7°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 18th (Sat) to allow time to travel back home.
