The trip between Helsinki and Tallin was simple and comfortable. If the weather is good and you don't mind the cigarette smoke it is nice to sit at the stern and have a drink. But get there early if you want a table. The boat was on time and on schedule and perfectly comfortable.

This was a wonderful way to get from Tallinn to Helsinki. Reasonable cost was one thing. The professional process of loading and unloading cars/ trucks etc was a sight to see in itself. Only criticism was the exorbitant cost of food and coffee on board.Besides that the coffee was cold!

Tallinn is the capital city and main seaport of Estonia. It is located on Estonia's north coast to the Baltic Sea. It has been shaped by nearly a millennium of outside influence. Its name, derived from taani linnus , meaning "Danish Fort", is a reminder of the fact that the city was founded by the Danes at the beginning of the thirteenth century, and since that time political control has nearly always been in the hands of foreigners - Germans, Swedes and Russians. The Germans have undoubtedly had the most lasting influence on the city; Tallinn was one of the leading cities of the Hanseatic League, the German-dominated association of Baltic trading cities, and for centuries it was known to the outside world by its German name, Reval. Even when Estonia was ruled by the kings of Sweden or the tsars of Russia, the city's public life was controlled by the German nobility, and its commerce run by German merchants.
Helsinki, also called "Stadi" in local slang, is the capital of Finland. It is located in the southern part of Finland on the shore of the Gulf of Finland.
Founded in 1550 as a rival to the Hanseatic city of Tallinn by the King Gustav I of Sweden, Helsinki struggled in its infancy. The fledging settlement was plagued by poverty, wars and diseases. For a long time it remained as a small low-key coastal town, overshadowed by the more thriving trade centers in the Baltic region. Although much of the first half of the 20th century was a violent period for Helsinki, it continued to steadily develop. Modern postwar urbanization of the 1970s, which occurred relatively late in European context, tripled the population in the metropolitan area, making the Helsinki metropolitan area one of the fastest growing urban centers in the European Union in 1990s.
