Went for the Easter bonfire, which was a great atmosphere. Unfortunately the weather changed suddenly and it snowed!

Be sure and see the old church with the sconces in the shape of hands. The manor houses are also very beautiful.

Seurasaari is the most attractive sight of nature in Helsinki. Just 20 minutes from centre of Helsinki. There is old typical wooden buildings you can visit in the Summer, you can swim (be aware the water can be cold!) or just take sun baths. There is also a closed nudist beach, but there is own parts for women and men.... More

if you are in Helsinki during summer Seurasaari might be ok. There are old buildings from around Finland. Views are nice.

Seurasaari open-air museum hosts original wooden buildings from different parts of Finland that have been dismantled and then re-erected as museum artifacts. Visitors are encouraged to use public transportation (bus nr 24) as there are very few parking places available. It will take ~ 15-20 minutes by bus from city center to Seurasaari. It is a tradition for city-dwellers in... More

You can reach Seurasaari by local buses that I heard operate frequently, so getting there isn't a hassle. Once you reach, at the entrance there is a ticket counter where you can purchase tickets (not expensive at all) and a very comprehensible map to walk around the island, at your own pace. This place is magical and transports you to... More

We took the bus to Seurasaari and despite the fact that our visit was off-peak, the place did not disappoint. We saw squirres, we saw old Finnish houses, we saw patches of snow. Enough to excite the parents and kids on our wee Helsinki walk. I can only imagine how pretty this place must be during other seasons. By the... More

I was really impressed with the beautiful nature , the old fashioned cottages, the ponds and the walk path around the island . The squirrels aren't very friendly , but it's still a good place for joggers and romantic couples. The little cafe is good but a bit over priced on traditional pastries.

You can easily go to Seurasaari by taking a bus outside Sokos. I haven't been to the Air Museum, but as you are walking the island you will pass a lot of traditional Finnish buildings that have been relocated from other places in Finland. At the end of the island and next to the sea there is a grilling area.
