I am visiting Pori to see and do some research on an exhibition at the museum so I will be there for around 3/4 days. I am wondering whether to stay in Kristinestad- the guide book says it's very beautiful/old and commute by bus each day or stay in Tampere- which sounds like a busy and interesting city and commute from there. I am thinking out aloud - maybe it's possible to stay a couple of nights in Kristinestad and my last night/day in Tampere where my flight goes from. Any thoughts most welcome as I have not been to Finland before and want to see different aspects of the country in a short time.
