What people are saying about Harju
In Helsinki the tram line 7 goes directly to Terminal 2 at the port. Arrived in Tallinn after a 2 hour crossing. The time until the departure of the ferry was sufficient for a tour of the city. The Christmas market was very nice. Be sure to go to the viewpoint. From there you have a wonderful view of the entire city.
Check in, barding flawless and totally easy. Different cafes, restaurants, fast food chains on the ship on several decks, where you have free choice of seats. You can also shop duty free.
