Things to Know about Helsinki

Helsinki is provided with commercial air service by the Helsinki Airport, located in the nearby city of Vantaa, Finland, about 10.6 miles north of the center of Helsinki. While there's plenty to do in the city throughout the year, the best time to make a visit is during the summer, between mid-June and mid-August. The weather during the summer is mild, with high temperatures ranging from the high 60s to the low 70s and lows into the low to mid-50s. The sun only sets a few hours during the summer, so there's plenty of time to enjoy a day on the water sailing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach. There's a lot to see in the city as well, from the Nordic architecture of the City Hall and Senate Square to the 18th-century Island Fortress of Suomenlinna.
