I decided to enter Russia via Finland for several main reasons. First, the trains don't run very often to St. Petersburg and the 7 hr bus ride did not sound very appealing. Next, I still had my Eurail pass which gave me a 50% discount on the ferry and paid for the Finland half of the train trip to St. Petersburg. Oh yeah.. by going through Helsinki …
... the plane. Furthermore, the Asiana flight would have arrived late in Sydney making connections tricky.
After discussion we agreed to swap and had our showers and changed and were taken along to the Korean Airlines desk. We then found we were not sitting together but several rows apart. This could not be changed.
When we got to the plane, the man sitting next to Marion was happy to swap and we were once ...
Today I visited Seurasaari an Island just off Helsinki, it took us a 30 minute bus ride and then a short walk but it was worth it. The Island is such a contrast to the bustling Capital of Helsinki, its peaceful and tranquil surrounded by trees and nature. As we followed the path around the Island there were some great photo opportunities and the animals certainly weren't camera shy, one squirrel walked right up to my feet as scared as I was it was quite good.
The sun shone down on ...
Today (Monday) we set off quite early to look around Stockholm. I enjoyed watching everyone hurrying off to work on a Monday morning while I am on holiday! We had a local guide to take us around the city. We visited the City Hall where they present the Nobel medals on 10th December each in the blue room which is actually red. We also visited the room that the city ...
... to have lunch here. Anna had Thai fried rice while Steph and I had some fried seafood. We found the meal only mediocre.
With lunch over, we walked up to the magnificent Uspenski Cathedral, an Eastern Orthodox church on a hill and joined many other tourists in exploring it. We then walked on to Senate Square and visited the equally magnificent white Helsinki Cathedral, a Finnish Lutheran Evangelical church with the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Sokos Hotel Presidentti Helsinki
Good value for money hotel
Hotel in the centre of Stockholm, nice breakfast buffet, rooms average but very helpful staff in the reception.
Would go again.
This hotel offers great value: rooms are modern, beds are really comfortable, staff are helpful and the breakfast buffet is abundant. Also the location is really convenient, close to the railway station and the shops.
It was my second time in Finland, but the first time I stayed in Helsinki for several nights (end of November). Sokos Hotel Presidentti (formerly, Ramada hotel, so do not be confused when you see Ramada on top of ratings here and Sokos Presidentti being number 58 or so - it is all one hotel) was not my first choice but it had available rooms at reasonable price, so my Mom and I stayed there. Reception is friendly, although when there are lots of visitors arriving you have to stay in lines as people at the reception are not able to cope with all of them (sometimes, the lines are not friendly :)
This hotel is situated in the centre of Helsinki, very near the big shopping malls. I booked a standard twin room for me and my girlfriend through Hotelclub, getting a very fair discount, making this hotel price worthy.
This hotel had an excellent location - next to the railway station and only a one minute walk from the centre.
The room was lovely and had a nice en-suite with bath and overhead shower. The tv channels were not so good but hey who's there to watch tv?
Breakfast was a buffet and had an excellent selection including salad, toast, bread, scrambled egg and cereals. The reception staff were also nice and friendly.
Omly minus mark was for the sauna which is only open from 0700 until 1000 and then 1700 until 2000. I don't know why this was but personally I'm having dinner between 5pm and 8pm!
Otherwise a lovely hotel.
Wonderful hotel !!!
This hotel was simply wonderful : really nice room with a big TV set, a bath in the bathroom, very good breakfast, helpful and nice staff. Everything was clean and modern, and the location was one of the best in central Helsinki : you had everything near !!! An excellent value !
Very good hotel! Very central, practically next to the Railway Station. We had a really posh room for little dosh. Breakfast was plentiful and the service was impeccable.
Keep it up!
