Helsinki & Tallinn Excursion 2013

Discover two great Capitals in one weekend

Part 1: Helsinki

Helsinki, our capital area is home for one million Finns & foreigners. a City on probably every International Student’s to-do list once arriving to Finland and no wonder; it offers countless ways to spend a great weekend. Especially when you know where to look for. Reindeer restaurants, Rock Church and Finland's only metro line; That's Helsinki!

Part 2: Tallinn

Tallinn's charmful old town with it's small shops, restaurants and cafeterias (not starbucks, but real cozy ones ;) along the narrow streets guarantee a memorable visit. Being a euro country with 30% cheaper prices sounds good too, right? KGB-museum, Tax-Free alcohol shop and climb onto the Toompea Hill for a postcard photo; That's Tallinn!
