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.
Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum and Porvoo Old Town. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Porvoo (Cathedral of Porvoo & Castle Hill), Kotka (Sapokka Water Garden & Linden Esplanade) and Ekenas Archipelago National Park (in Raseborg). Pack the 30th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, pause for some serene contemplation at Helsinki Cathedral, brush up on your military savvy at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna, and test your team's savvy at popular escape rooms.

Use Inspirock's suggestions to plan your Helsinki trip and find the best activities and attractions for your vacation.

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major aiport is Helsinki Vantaa Airport. In August, daytime highs in Helsinki are 24°C, while nighttime lows are 13°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 4th (Wed) so you can travel back home.
