Nice trip, the ferry arrived in time. The only minus: it was unclear how we had to check-in on the return trip. Outbound we had received some tickets for the return trip so it seemed that we didn't have to check in when returning. When we arrived at the ferry, it appeared that we did have to check in. The check-in desk was already closed at that time. It took some time (and discussions with the staff) to be allowed on board.
'Anonymous' travelled Ventspils Nynashamn with Stena Line
Ventspils is a city in north western Latvia in the Baltic Sea.
A seaside resort with fine Art Nouveau buildings, a neo-Classical old town laid out around a busy square on which stands the town hall, Ventspils has a growing reputation as a quality tourist destination.
According to the local tourist board, Ventspils is ‘the city that honours the past, thinks of the future, and never stops working!’
Nynäshamn is a Municipality in eastern Sweden just south of Stockholm. There are over 1,000 islands and islets in the municipality. The sea dominates Nynäshamn - in summer the harbour is positively alive with activity. Its perfect location for a harbour was just one of the reasons Nynäshamn flourished. At the turn of the century, the little fishing village grew into a centre for ferry traffic to Gotland and Russia, and it also became known internationally as a spa resort. During the 1912 Olympic Games, Nynäshamn hosted the Olympic sailing events.
Nowadays a large number of annual races for sailing and motor-boats can be watched from the beautiful vantage point of Strandvägen in the south of the town. Nynäshamn today is an attractive small town with a wide variety of shops and restaurants. The town centre is within easy walking distance from both harbour and station..
