Is the yellow cnal boat part of the Helsinki Card "Sun Lines" that will cost us an extra 30 Euro for a family ticket?
Exactly - there is a green and a yellow line. And friends told us always to use the yellow line as there is a very narrow bridge - even you are not allowed to stand up while you are passing the bridge.
I remember now that the tour passed the zoo.
I would give your husband a day-off!!!
Go with your kids to the zoo (shuttle by boat from market square available).
Your husband cannot disappear if you buy him a single ticket only and do not give him any money: Soumenlinnen is an island. Beside he is a good swimmer you have a good control. Once you get over to pay him the return ticket you'll have him back... but there is also a 1st class restaurant on the island.
What exactly is Piroggen?
Do you know Wan-Ton-Soup from your Chinese Restaurant?
Or Ravioli from the Italians.
It's another dough so it's quite hard.
Filled with minced meat or cheese or mashed-potatoes...
Looks like a Danish but salty and harder.
We spend a half day in Soumenlinnen. Beside the inside - as already mentioned by other cruisers - it's nice to stay outside (if the weather permits...) and enjoy some of the Moskitos (very famous!!! - Do not buy any creams in Central Europe. For Finnish Moskitos they have the flavour "Dinner is served"!!! We were thought they were kitting us when they sold an equipement like in a Jungle...).
"Leningrad Cowboys" are good if
you are somehow drunken... or some other drugs...
it's already 2.30 am and your neighbours are already sleeping...
your TV set has an excellent volume regulation - as loud as possible...
you have great speakers...
a lot of friends in the same mood...
you are able to stay awake until 4.30 am in the mood...
you have a good door protection for the worst case that police is coming because of your neighbours...
and last not least you like "weird" - not straight music.
I watched the movie 6.30 am when I cannot sleep anymore and before my first coffee and breakfast. That's maybe why I disliked the restaurant.
(It's more weired than "Murielle's Wedding" but less weired than "Priscilla - Queen of the Dessert" - If you are fan of "The flying doctors" or "Neighbours" it will not be anything for you...).
