Helsinki Guide

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.


Tallinn Guide

The city of Tallinn is the largest city in Estonia, and its capital, and is a major hub for industry and regional politics. Visitors to the city will love indulging in the city's cultural offerings and visiting the many attractions on offer. Founded in the early part of the 13th century, Tallinn lies next to the Gulf of Finland and is home to an important sea port. Many aspects of the city are medieval, especially around the heritage listed Old Town area, with its maze of cobblestone alleys, many church spires and well preserved fortresses and turrets. The Toompea area of the city is where visitors will find many of the city's most unusual landmarks which includes Toompea Castle and the lovely hilltop Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which is an important Orthodox building. Another popular attraction in Tallinn is the imposing 13th century Town Hall which overlooks Raekoja Plats and has a tall spire that is topped with an iconic bronze statue of a young boy which guards the city and is known as Old Thomas.
