It is nice to hang out on the sun deck with a glass of bubbling and enjoy the picturesque Helsinki view.
Introducing Our Ship Nikolai II
Nikolai II is a historic ship that is located in the most central part of Helsinki, with amazing views of the Market Square, Helsinki Cathedral, the Presidential Palace, cruise ships, and islands. Check the location here. Nikolai II is the oldest ship built in Helsinki (1903) that can still run on its own engine. Orginally called Nautilus, it was renamed after Tsar Nikolai II who had commissioned its construction.
The ship has four decks and many specialties like an authentic wood-burning sauna, sun deck on two decks, spacious old-fashioned saloon and of course a wonderful kitchen that can be utilized when preparing delicious meals for our guests. Bigger events for up to 100 people are also doable. Nikolai II is 29.8 meters / 97.7 feet long and 6.1 meters / 20 feet wide.
From Nikolai II you can see the Helsinki Cathedral, Uspenski Cathedral, Presidential Palace, Market Square and Market Hall. The location is breathtaking.
Helsinki’s archipelago is fantastic and a “must-do” experience. There are over 300 islands just in Helsinki alone and over 187,000 in total in Finland.
