There will be no post-congress tours organized by us. However, Helsinki is only a few hours away by boat, train or bus from Tallinn, Estonia and St. Petersburg, Russia and some of you may be interested in visiting these historical places. Therefore, we have collected internet-addresses of travel agencies in Finland who organize trips to these cities. Please contact them, if you would like to organize with them a visit to these cities. Please note that a personal visa is required for St. Petersburg and takes some time to be processed.
