When we got off the ship, a minute walk from the ship, a public bus (#14) was waiting. And it only cost 8 euro each for the whole day getting around. We started from Sibelius Monument, Regatta for a quick sticky roll and hot chocolate (highly recommend), we went afterwards to Temppeliaukion Kirkko and were delighted to get a chance and to listen to an orchestra practicing. We also went inside Kampin Kappell. Then we went to Old Market Hall/Kapaturi Market, Esplanade, Market Square, the Tori Quarters, the Senate Square, Helsinki Cathedral and finally Uspenski Cathedral. If only there was more time. Read Less

We walked from the dock to the old-town section and it took about 45 minutes but it was a pleasant walk. The two churches we saw were very nice and we could go in them and look around. Not many people here. The main city itself isn't all that old but they have lots of parks and it is easy to walk around. We enjoyed our time here but it wasn't nearly enough time. Take a day away from St. Petersburg. Read Less

Nice scenic walk into town along the coast. It's a big city, modern. Lovely market selling bits and pieces and a fish market too.

Port is quite far from city center. Had to pay for a ship's shuttle to get there. Weather was awful. Didn't stay in city very long, unfortunately.

Here we used the hop on hop off buses to get into town and around. They were pretty good and we were able to see the Rock Church and the Sibelius Monument. Both were extremely underwhelming! We enjoyed the Esplanade and the outdoor market, along with visiting the Old Market Food Hall with its wonderful little shops and places to eat. Had an amazing seafood soup at one of the stalls and bought lots of little Finnish souvenirs and snacks. We shopped at the Stockman Department store and found so much to see and buy there - lots of Finnish chocolate to bring back to family. In my opinion, skip the Rock church and Sibelius monument and stay on the Esplanade and visit the Old Market Food Hall! Read Less

Toured on our own. Public transit was good going out but difficult to return to the ship. We had an interesting day at Sumolinia Island.

We took the shuttle from the port (it would have been better if we were closer to the city center). Helsinki was beautiful and we loved their open market. It was easy to see everything within a couple of hours.

We also did not need a shore excursion here. Our Taxi driver took us to several of the places he thought we needed to see and that was good enough for us. He waited for us while we went into the Rock Church and then took us through the city to see the President's Palace, Senate Square, Cathedrals and then recommended a great restaurant for lunch. The people there were very nice and our taxi driver on the way back to the ship told us a little more about Finland that was interesting. He came from South Africa as a young adult and was able to build his own business, has healthcare, retirement and education. Such a nice experience! Read Less

This is a lovely port. We simply got a map from the tourist booth at the port and walked around. Thoroughly enjoyed this port.
