About St Petersburg

In short, it's a city with a beating heart, a vibrant history and an integral future in modern Russia. Very different in character from Moscow, the city is known for being modern, progressive and cool, featuring great shopping and nightlife to complement the wide range of historic sites. Today, it makes a great entry port into exploring Russia further, with St Peter Line offering sailings to St Peter Line from Helsinki in Finland.

Owing to Peter the Great's passion for boats and sailing, the city is perfectly served for ferry services, and recent visa regulation relaxations have made it even more attractive for tourists. One site definitely worth seeing is the Winter Palace - legend has it that Russian citizens walking past the front of the Winter Palace during the reign of the Peter the Great were in constant danger of being pulled from the street in order to be subjects for the enthusiastic though somewhat over confident Tsar's amateur dentistry experiments. Visitors to the capital will be relieved to discover that this is no longer a danger they face.

About Helsinki

Helsinki's ferry port lies on the southern coast of Finland, resting on the Gulf of Finland in the Baltic Sea. Helsinki is the busiest ferry port in Finland with over 6 million passengers passing through it annually and offers a number of connections to Sweden, Estonia, Germany and Russia on a daily basis. These can all be booked online with AFerry.

    Fun way to get home
    • Norwegian Air from Helsinki to Gatwick is good value and sailing out of St. Petersberg was good fun. Spent the day at Heurika science museum near to the airport. Ace

    • When people ask me about Finland......I tell them forget Finland, but the Ferry made the trip! I was very surprised how great the boat was. The buffet was the best!

    Good time on board ship
    • Really enjoyed the overnight journey. The sax player was amazing and so was the food and variety of things to do.

    St petersburg to Helsinki ferry
    • The ferry was comfortable and restaurant excellent. My only criticism is the poor boarding steps at St Petersburg. Dragging suitcases up the steps would not be easy for elderly or disabled.
