we plan to stay for 4 days in Helsinki.
if we add 3-4 extra days is Tampere a good choice? any suggestion of things to do/see in Tampere?
We wont use a car just a local bus or train, so is it easy to do it from the capital?
our flight back is from Helskini at 14.00. do we have enough time to come from Tampere earlier that day or should be in Helskini the day before to be on the safe side?
1.Are 4 full days enough for proper sightseeing of Helsinki in early june?
we like to see good museums, landmarks of the city, a nice park and a local market.
2.what kind of weather should we expect at that time?
Hi from Australia, I'm going to be in Hesinki on the 2nd and 3rd January 2012 are these markets operating at this time ?? Can anyone help please Mermaid
How big are the ferries to st. Petersburg? I am not a cruise person and the few times I have been on hydrofoil type boats in was nautious (sp?) by the time I got off. If we did this, it would be perhaps next summer, so I'm guessing the sea isn't too horribly rough then.
Can you recomend museums to visit tomorrow in Helsinki? Are any museums for free in mondays?
Not expensive cafes in the city centre?
We are going to Paris in Oct, 2012 and have an 8 hour layover (planned) in Helsinki. We would like to go into the city without our carryon luggage. Is there a place to keep them at the airport? Also, what is the cheapest, dependable way to get in and out and how much time should we allow? Thanks for any and all help.
We will be in Helsinki for one day on a cruise (in July 2012). Any suggestions for a nice restaurant that is NON TOURISTY and which serves typical Finnish food? This will be for lunch.
We are going to Kalasatama to see Metallica at monday. How late does the metro run? What other options there are to come back to the centre? I guess we wont be only one going back, so there coul be a plan b just in case we miss the metro.. Buses and trams I think, but how we know we go to right way? Would be nice to know and not to need to ask for a driver.
Are the cellphone tickets still in use?
I need to get to the airport by 6 AM on Sunday (so I probably need to get on the bus around 5:30 AM), will the 615 or the Finnair bus be running that early? Or will I have to take a taxi? Anyone know where I can find a schedule?
I would like to ask what is the cheapest way to get from Tallinn to Helsinki? How much it could cost both ways? If a date is important, trip could be planned from September.
I'll be visiting Helsinki in April and I've only got a few days in the city so I'm trying to figure out where everything is so that I can maximize my sightseeing.
I'm trying to create a map of everything there is to do and see in the city based on stuff from this site as well as others. Does anyone see any glaring omissions for attractions that I've missed?
I'm going to be taking a ferry to Tallinn when I leave the city too... does anyone know the address/location of the docks? I want to plot that on there too but am not sure where it is yet.
will there be enough time to leave the airport and visit a little of the city? In Oct, is it cold? If I have time, what would be good for me and my family to see or experience?
We are planning 1-day trip to Helsinki with 11 mounths children in March. We will be on foot and weather will be probably not warm.
Are there places where we can feed child? In cafes in shoping centres? Child eats only baby feed.
Something interesting to visit in the city centre?
Sorry, should have added this to previous posting. Trying different options.
Does anyone know where Observatory Hill Park is and is it easy to get to, also re previous posting for Olympic stadium, can you get there by tram.

If someone of you living in Helsinki has been to Cantina west lately, have you liked it?
We have booked a table for friday night, for my husbands 40th birthday. No he found some comments at eat.fi that past moths the quality of the food has gone down. I have heard there is a new boss at the restaurant. Now we wonder if we should cancel it.. And if so, where would we get fajitas for him and a good steak for me? I know Santa Fe, but is there any others? There is Gringos Locos also, but since we have it at Tampere, we´d prefer something that we wont get in here.
My son is heading to Helsinki for a month on Feb 15. He will be staying with a family so I know they will look after him and probably have old jackets etc that they can lend him once he finds out how cold it is. He lives in Sydney and has never experienced really cold weather. When he came to visit me in New Zealand and we had a bit of a cold snap he really complained. So I know it will be a shock.
What I want to know is are houses and malls superheated so as soon as you go in you feel really over dressed? Would thermal underwear (except if you go out snowballing) make you feel sweaty and uncomfortable inside?

Someone told me that she was in Tallinn week ago, and Helsinki terminal was messed up outside. She was with bus, but we will go by car week from now.
Is there parking area at all now, or should we make plan b? We first did think we would find some free parking in walking distance, but we would still want the car so close to terminal, that their parking would be the best location. But I don´t want to miss the boat because of parking problems!

I will be spending October/November in Helsinki, and I am looking for a pleasant area of the city to rent an apartment or small house - perhaps up to three months.
What is a pleasant area? Not city centre but within about 4-5 kil. of centre.
Somewhere with parks, bicyle routes, transportation, nearby shopping (food).
There will be two adults/one 4 years of age child.
Hi I am possibly coming up to Helsinki in the next 3 weeks or so (yes i realise its last minute) and I am trying to find a place to stay for 3 months while i do my placements there. I dont know if there are any free places through HOAS still but just in case there are not, do you know where I could stay? I dont mind sharing a place but I would like to have a kitchen available...something to share between a small number of people. And of course, being a student, I cant afford a lot... preferably anything between 300-500 euros...more on the 300 side.
Does anyone know of anywhere? Thanks
