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 Korkeasaari Zoo. Deepen your sense of the past at sights like Rock Church and Helsinki Cathedral. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Riimikko (in Porvoo), Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa) and Arctic Expedition (in Espoo). Pack the 2nd (Tue) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, take a stroll through Ullanlinna, buy something for everyone on your list at Kamppi Shopping Centre, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kamppi Chapel of Silence.

Plan my Helsinki trip by asking Inpirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

Columbus, USA to Helsinki is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of bus and flight; or do a combination of flight and ferry. You'll lose 7 hours traveling from Columbus to Helsinki due to the time zone difference. Expect little chillier temperatures when traveling from Columbus in June; daily highs in Helsinki reach 65°F and lows reach 50°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 6th (Sat) so you can travel back home.
