About Tallinn

Although the Estonian civilization is very old, the region has seldom existed as an independent state. Throughout Tallinn's tumultuous past, the city has changed hands many times - from the original Estonians, to the Danes, the Hanseatic League, the Teutonic Knights, the Swedes, the Russians, and the Germans.

A succession of conquerors left their marks on Tallinn city; they constructed fortresses and cathedrals to serve their interests in Estonia. Today visitors can wander through Tallinn, and trace the history of the entire Baltic Sea region.

The areas such as Toompea, Lower town, Kadriorg and Pirita are the older areas of the worth exploring for their architectural abundance. This part of Tallinn is recognised by UNESCO as the world heritage site. You can purchase "Tallinn Card" from the local tourist office which gives the holder access to free local public transport and entry to most attractions.

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.

    Day trip to Helsinki
    • While having a 5 day break in Tallinn we decided to have a day in Helsinki. We booked in advance of our break which was simple enough. Just one small matter of upgrading was you need to do both journeys as it won't do both legs automatically. Print off your tickets and book a taxi to the ferry terminal and it was that easy. Once on the ferry(we booked into the comfort lounge) find your lounge and let the journey take the strain. We had excellent food on the Journey and on arrival there was a tram stop outside the terminal door which takes you to the city centre. The return journey was just as simple with the same amount of comfort. Just one word of warning for fellow passengers in the departure lounge it cost 11.5 euro for a bottle of beer a bit of a shock to a Brit used to paying less than £5.00 for a pint. Overall an easy and pleasant experience which I recommend to everyone planning a trip to Helsinki via Estonia.
