Tartu In A Day

Thanks to its strategic location just a stone’s throw away from the Russian border, Tartu has become one of the most well-known cities among Russians, especially those who live close to the border (St. Petersburg or Pskov). Locals frequently commute between these cities—just to get staples at a more friendly price, such as cheese, beer and so forth—which takes approximately 3 hours round trip (including passport control in both countries’ posts). Remember, these staples are essential for many families in Russia.Following that ‘trend’, we got an idea to kill two birds with one stone—visiting Pskov and flying to Tartu before finally ending our journey in Tallinn and…

Travel Around the City in Stockholm and Outside the City

Stockholm is incredibly expensive. Three or four days living comfortably in Sweden’s capital city successfully made me broke. Accommodation, transportation, and food were on our list of priorities to survive and live not like vagabonds.

You need more preparation for arranging your budget if you want to travel properly inside the country.

Travel to Stockholm from Turku by Ferry

To be honest, setting off on a journey hasn’t been an easy thing for me to do in recent years. When I was broke and jobless, I used to love flying. Even passing by an airport was able to get me as excited as a kid in a toy shop. Planes were able to conjure up ideas that something new is waiting to be explored, and a new world is ready to be discovered. But, nothing is perfect in this world. Now that I am not broke anymore and can afford a journey every 3 months (I should brag about that, huh), I've started to hate flying.…

Having Fun in Turku’s Castle and Turku Cathedral

Turku Castle Besides being one of my favorite cities, Turku is also home to my favorite place to visit and it is considered one of the biggest and most visited places in the country. Don’t get me wrong. It's not a bar, discotheque, or anything like that. It's a CASTLE. Yep. The castle, which was first founded around the 12th century, has become one of the most visited museums in Finland. The heyday of this museum/castled dates back to the 11th or 12th centuries, where Turku and Finland was still one of the provinces of the Swedish Kingdom. Initially it was established to serve as a bastion…
