Today I'm taking you to Helsinki, another of our Baltic cruise ports.
I have to admit that the laid back pace of Helsinki was a nice change after the whirlwind two days in St.Petersburg. While waiting for our ferry, we browsed this market.
Then the ferry took us to Suomenlinna Sveaborg, a UNESCO World Heritage site.
Construction of this fortress began in 1748 by the Swedes as defense against the Russians.
A view from Suomenlinna of our ship docked at Helsinki.
This entrance is known as the King's Gate.
On our return to Helsinki we walked to a unique domed church, Temppeliaukio Kirkko(Rock Church). It was built inside a massive block of granite and is unique in the world.
And I do have to share a shot of one of the many ferries we saw on our trip. This ferry goes to Tallinn, Estonia, 82 kilometres away.
Next up is Stockholm!
Thanks for stopping by!
