We enjoyed the scenic surroundings and gained an interesting insight in some Finnish History and culture. Best Korvapuustis for miles in the summer Cafe. Easy to reach by public bus from the main railway station.

It's quite a nice forested island, just far enough from the city to be quiet, and seems popular with Finns going for jogs, walks or picnics. However, tourists also get to see a bunch of historic wood buildings that have been moved here. You can...More

Hi, the trip from "Olympiaterminaali" takes 50 minutes either by bus 24 or tram 2 and 4. From another cruise harbour "Hernesaari" it is better to take a taxi. The trip takes 25 minutes (about 5 miles).
