Helsinki can be reached by air from major cities around the world, and travel from the airport to the city centre (Central Railway Station) is simple by local trains I and P (duration 30 mins, regional ticket €5.50). The Helsinki Central Railway Station has daily train connections to St. Petersburg and Moscow, as well as to cities around Finland. For those travelling from Sweden and Estonia, and perhaps even Russia, Germany and Poland, arriving by ferry may also be a viable and interesting option.
The feis venue can be reached by local trains U, L, and E from the Central Railway Station (duration 24 mins, regional ticket €5.50). The train station Espoon Keskus is located 400 m from the venue. If you are arriving directly from the airport, you can also change from the train I to U/L/ E at Huopalahti. From the feis hotel, you can take the same trains U/L/E (from Leppävaara train station, 900 m from the hotel) to the feis venue (duration 12 mins, Espoo & Kauniainen ticket €3.20). www.reittiopas.fi is helpful for planning all journeys in the Helsinki region.
