I visited Helsinki in early June and had great weather - t-shirt and a light jumper for walking around. Obviously there's plenty of daylight. Everyone was out socialising, the old Olympic pool (outdoor) was great. Lots of rooftop bars with great views and usually a list of which hours the deck will be in sunshine. But I'd love to go back in winter and go north to see the borealis. Depends what you like.
