I went to Helsinki by ferry. You need to buy a ticket before 1 hour, I bought it at Talink. It cost 28 EUR – very expensive, but I took some food with me so I didn’t need to buy any. Finland is the most expensive country I have ever been!
The journey took 3 hours. I had to get up at 5 am 😀 cause the ferry left at 6.30. Very early, but if you want to see Helsinki in 1 day, you have to wake up early.Al time I spend in coffee, I wanted to see a sea. The food was very expensive, so I don’t know if it is good 🙂 The wind was strong so the ferry startedto swing and I felt a little sick. There was a lot of people at that time in ferry, but because my health I didn’t see them. it was my first journey in the see or maybe I was sick cause the party last night :)) A lot of people bought there alcohol…
I’ve heard that Helsinki is the capital of design, so I wanted to see more of modern architecture. What I’ve done in Helsinki:
- The post is near city center, so I went there by foot. First I found Tourist information center and took a map 🙂 The tourist information is here Pohjoisesplanadi 19 – you have to print a map before, cause it is very hard to read finish words :))
- Designkortteli – is the region of design shops. You must go there and see a lot of interesting litlle things
- Helsinki is very beautiful at night from ferry more beutiful than at day. The dom is on the hill and you can see it from far away 🙂
- They have a bar in tram – very funny :)) You can go inside and order some coffee or beer and drive with it in the city – comfortable when you are tired. It is called Sparakoff.
- There are a lot of sweet coffees and streets, you can just get lost in these streets.
- I was in Kaupatori market, Senatori square, the port of yachts, Esplanada park – where you can just walk, Kamppi Chapel of Silence – intersting architecture;
- Rock Church (Temppeliaukio Kirkko) – wow, really beautiful. Inside there is very good sound – you can check it 😉
- I spent some hours in Helsinki amusement park, you can check it here: http://www.linnanmaki.fi/en/index.php/how-to-get-there/
Now I understand why people from Helsinki goes to do a shopping in Tallinn :))
Next stop – Warsawa!
