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.
Sea Fortress Suomenlinna and Seurasaari Island and Open-Air Museum are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Eschew the tourist crowds and head to Nuuksio National Park and Hakaniemi Market. Change things up with these side-trips from Helsinki: Sipoonkorven Kansallispuisto (in Vantaa), Fagervik Museum (in Inkoo) and Hanko (Tulliniemi Nature Path & Bellevue Beach). Pack the 31st (Sat) with family-friendly diversions at Linnanmaki Amusement Park. There's still lots to do: admire the striking features of Temppeliaukio Church, take a stroll through Katajanokka, look for all kinds of wild species at Arboretum Mustila, and contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Uspenskin Cathedral (Uspenskin Katedraali).

To see where to stay, traveler tips, and more tourist information, read Helsinki tour planner.

In August, plan for daily highs up to 24°C, and evening lows to 13°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 31st (Sat) so you can travel back home.
