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.
Get a sense of the local culture at Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum. Take a break from the city and head to Nuuksio National Park and Beach Mansikkalahti. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Arboretum Mustila (in Elimaki), Niivermaki Nature Conservation Area (in Kouvola) and Bellevue Beach (in Hanko). Spend the 28th (Tue) exploring nature at Ekenas Archipelago National Park. Pack the 24th (Fri) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. And it doesn't end there: take a stroll through Katajanokka, contemplate the long history of Sederholm House (Sederholmin Talo), don't miss a visit to Porvoo Old Town, and explore the world behind art at Kansallisgalleria.

To see where to stay, other places to visit, and other tourist information, go to the Helsinki attractions planning site.

If you are flying in from United Kingdom, the closest major aiports are Helsinki Vantaa Airport, Turku Airport and Tampere-Pirkkala Airport. In May, plan for daily highs up to °C, and evening lows to °C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 30th (Thu) so you can travel back home.
