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.
Step off the beaten path and head to Nuuksio National Park and Sapokka Water Garden. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo, Porvoo Old Town, & more), Heureka, the Finnish Science Centre (in Vantaa) and Maritime Centre Vellamo (in Kotka). Spend the 19th (Mon) exploring nature at Teijo National Park. There's much more to do: take an in-depth tour of Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum, squeeze the most out of the city with City Tours, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms.

To find reviews, photos, more things to do, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki day trip planner .

If you are flying in from Italy, the closest major airport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. August in Helsinki sees daily highs of 24°C and lows of 13°C at night. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 20th (Tue) early enough to travel back home.
