I am looking for reasonable accomodations. I found a steal of a deal in Tampere (250/week from www.getravelop.com - our whole family can stay ther3 4-5 in a condo) at the Holiday Club.
BUT - we want to see if we can find old famliy records, short-tail relatives, graves, etc. So -- if we took the inexpensive lodging, we'd have to travel 167 km and 349 km. How much, realistically, could this cost with rental cars (we have found a large range). Can we take public transportation? Is a rail-pass worth it?
If we stay in the smaller towns, we still need to pay for the transportation and then the lodging seems expensive.
Are there home rooms/apartments we can rent?
I realize we need to do the research and am trying to do so. Any ideas?
