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 Tallinn 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 Tallinn in Estonia.
The autonomous territory of Mariehamn, which is under Finish sovereignty, is the capital of Aland and its town and harbour is a great place to explore and can be done so quite easily on foot, by bicycle or by bus. The four masted barque and sailing ship Pommern is located where ferries arrive in the town and is below Aland's Maritime Museum by the Badhusparken. A popular attraction in the town is St. Goran's Church which is located halfway along the Esplanaden Boulevard, which is lined with Lime trees and runs from Vasterhamn to Osterhamn. It is worth heading into central Mariehamn to the Torgatten pedestrian precinct as this is where many of the town's shops, cafes and restaurants can be found here. In this area is where you will also find the town and region's seat of power, the Sjalvstyrelsegarden, which is made up of Aland's parliament and provincial government, the town hall and other government buildings.
The town is located on a peninsular and has two main harbours, one on the western shore and the other on the eastern shore. Both remain ice-free for almost the whole year and are non-tidal. The western harbour is where daily services to Sweden, Estonia and mainland depart from. The town's eastern harbour is the location of one of the largest marinas in Scandinavia.
