Located in the Uusimaa region of southern Finland, on the shores of the Gulf of Finland, is the city of Helsinki. The capital of Finland is roughly 80 km to the north of Talin in Estonia, 400 km to the north of Stockholm in Sweden and 300 km to the west of St Petersburg in Russia. Helsinki is widely regarded as one of the major cities in northern Europe and is the country's main hub for politics, finance, commerce and culture.
Popular visitor attractions in the city include Helsinki's largest museum, the National Museum of Finland. It contains a large collection of historical artefacts that date back to prehistoric times through to the present day. The museum's home, a neomedieval castle, is also a popular tourist attraction in its own right. The Helsinki City Museum, the Finnish National Gallery and the Design Museum are three other museums in the city that are worth visiting.
Helsinki's port, the largest in Finland and the second largest in the Nordic countries, has three harbours and 6 passenger terminals. Ferry services using the port depart to Stockholm in Sweden, Travemunde in Germany and Talin in Estonia.
The German city of Lubeck is well known for its many Gothic buildings and for its tasty marzipan. Perhaps the most popular tourist attraction in the city is the 15th century Holstentor gateway, which has a truly fairytale appearance with its two cylindrical towers. A charming medieval city lies behind this where visitors will find many other historic buildings which has resulted in the city being declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in the 1980's. In fact, most of the city's most popular attractions are to be found in the Old Town area, known as Altstadt.
Nearby, the city's large ferry port lies on the shores of the Baltic Sea, within the suburb of Travemunde, where you will also find several pleasant sandy beaches and have a true feel of seaside tourism. Around Lubeck and its many public squares you will find a number of historical attractions and notable landmarks. Of particular interest is the 13th century Town Hall (Rathaus), the beautiful 12th century Dom (Lubeck Cathedral), the beautiful palatial architecture of Rantzau Castle (Schloss Rantzau), and the Heiligen Geist Hospital, the oldest hospital in Germany, which dates back to 1227.
