Estonia still hugely popular with the Finns


Record high number of passengers on Gulf of Finland in 2008

According to shipping enterprises operating in the Gulf of Finland, the passenger transport market there grew by 8.4 percent, or 487,000 people, during 2008. In total, a record high of 6,274,000 people travelled between Helsinki and Tallinn last year, the Finnish newspaper Ilta-Sanomat writes. According to a poll by Turu-uuringute AS in spring 2008, Estonia is still an excellent destination for Finns. This was the opinion of 90 percent of respondents in the poll. Approximately half of Finnish tourists visiting Estonia spend only one day there. The purpose of the trip is typically for shopping or leisure. Around 16 percent of respondents said they travel to Estonia for work-related purposes. Nearly half of the respondents visit Estonia two or three times a year. Surprisingly, women travel to Estonia more often than men, while 9 percent travel across the gulf more than 10 times a year.
