Turku Guide

Turku is a city located on the south west coast of Finland and lies at the mouth of the River Aura. The city's history stretches back to the 13th century which makes it Finland's oldest city and was at one point the most important population centre in the country. Between 1809 and 1812 Turku was Finland's capital city and continued to be Finland's largest city until the end of the 1840's.

Although Turku today does not quite have the same level of national importance as it used to have it is still the regional capital and an important base for commerce in northern Europe. The city has been the site of many of Finland's most important events and has had a significant influence of the country's history. Turku was awarded European Capital of Culture for 2011 along with the Estonian city of Tallin. Also, in 1996 Turku was declared the official Christmas City of Finland.

Due to its location, Turku is a notable commercial and passenger seaport with over three million passengers travelling through its port each year to Stockholm and Mariehamn.

Kapellskar Guide

The Swedish town of Kapellskar lies on the Baltic Sea coast and is located roughly 90 km to the north of Stockholm. The town's port is the most northerly port in the Ports of Stockholm and is one of Sweden's largest roll-on roll-off ports and is an important gateway for passengers travelling to Finland, Russia, Norway and the Baltics.

Kapellskar is located in Norrtalje Municipality in the east central region of Sweden and is the largest and most northern municipality of Stockholm County and was created by the amalgamation of a number of former municipalities in 1971. Many of the region's houses are summer cottages, and due to its location on the Stockholm Archipelago it is popular with visitors, especially from Stockholm.

The port has a very short approach route making it very attractive for fast sailings and turnarounds to Finland, Estonia and Åland and is served by a regular passenger ferry service to Mariehamn, Naantall and Paldiski. Check-In closes 1 hour before departure.
