"A beautiful sea journey for a good price"
Reviewed 16 January 2014 by Dash
We were travelling from Turku to Stockholm on the Baltic Princess. The ferry is quite big, it has all the necessities you might need on the ship - bars with evening program and disco, tax free shop (which is actually much cheaper than the airport one),etc. We had the cheapest cabin but it was still nice and tidy, with TV and clean bathroom. All the announcements are in languages including English. The staff was also friendly and helpful.

Everything was organised for an excellent crossing: cabin, seafood platters at the restaurant. However, because of some people with a Saturday night fever partying, it was impossible to sleep. I will do it again, but not on a Saturday night.

Turku is the oldest city and the first capital of the whole country. Today it is the capital of its region, the Southwest Finland. The name originates from a Slavic word "torg" - meaning a market place. The Swedish name for the town is Åbo - referring to the first settlers by the river, "å". Turku was born along the river Aura and it is one of the best attractions of the town. During the past centuries it has met with wars and invasions, fires, pests and other calamities. After the Great fire that destroyed nearly the whole city centre in 1827, it emerged from the ashes with renewed vigour. The zcars architect C.L. Engel gave the town a new townplan and some stately buildings. Turku has a lively and versatile cultural life: several theatres, a city philharmonic orchestra, chamber music, jazz & rock etc. The Turku Music Festival and rockfestival Ruisrock are among the oldest in Finland and even in whole Scandinavia.
The earliest mention of Stockholm in writing dates from 1252, when it was an important post in the iron trade from the mines in Bergslagen. The first part of the name — stock — means log, while the last part — holm — means islet or small island. The full origin of the name is disputed. The city is said to have been founded by Birger Jarl in order to protect Sweden from invasion from the sea by foreign navies and to stop pillage of the cities such as Sigtuna on Lake Mälaren. The first building at Stockholm was a fortification for the purpose of controlling the traffic between the Baltic Sea and Mälaren. Under the leadership of Magnus Ladulås Stockholm developed into an important trade city in the following decades, advanced through relations with Lübeck of the Hansa league. In 1270 Stockholm appears in historical documents as a city and in 1289 it was described as the most populated city in the Swedish region.
