We're about to book a Baltic Cruise that includes an 8:00am to 5:00 pm stop on Friday in mid-June. What should we do in Helsinki that is really unique to Helsinki?
I also have a couple of housekeeping questions: 1) how far (feet or meters) is the walk from the Cruise Ship Terminal to the nearest public transportation (bus/tram?), 2) Can tickets for transportation be purchased near the Terminal?, 3) Are tickets purchased at an automated kiosk or is there a person? (Our US-issued "chip and PIN" card is rarely accepted automated kiosks and we won't have Finnish currency for a nine hour visit). Thanks for any assistance.
