To Finland by car
Good roads, beautiful landscapes and well-developed infrastructure will bring maximum pleasure and comfort from a trip to Finland in your own car. Finland is ideal for a family trip. With young children you can go to the water park or amusement park. And in nature you can go for mushrooms or go fishing.
When traveling abroad in your car you need to apply for a “Green Card”, that is, insure the civil liability of the owner of a vehicle traveling abroad. It also protects you from various troubles associated with your car while you are in another country..
By car in Finland
Finland has three expressways, several dozens of highways connecting major cities and many local roads.
The trip from St. Petersburg to Lappeenranta is just over 200 kilometers, from St. Petersburg to Helsinki – a little less than four hundred kilometers.
To travel by car, in addition to other documents, you will need:
- driver’s license
- vehicle registration certificate
- inspection ticket
- green map
Finland has uniform road regulations for the European Union.
Finland is a country with a high level of road safety, so the Finns are simply psychologically unprepared for someone breaking the rules or acting unpredictably. For the “little things” that we easily get away with, in Finland you can pay a heavy fine, and simultaneously lose your Finnish visa.
Finland has several thousand highways with a total length of almost 80,000 kilometers. International routes connect Finland with Russia, Norway, Sweden and go to Finnish ports, the main of which are Helsinki and Turku.
Highways, of which there are few in Finland (several sections on the E18 Vaalimaa-Helsinki-Turku, E75 Helsinki-Lahti, E12 Helsinki-Tampere highways), allow you to travel at a speed of 100-120 km / h. On other roads, the average speed is 80 km / h.
On the side of the road there are cafes, kiosks, rest places with a toilet, a gas station with canteens and shops. Campsites and roadside hotels are a few kilometers from the road. Large interchanges adorn shopping malls.
Petrol and diesel prices in Finland are noticeably higher than in Russia, although at times they rise and fall after oil prices. The average price of ninety-fifth ranges from one to one and a half euros per liter. The average diesel price is one euro plus or minus twenty cents.
There are a lot of gas stations in Finland. Prices are different, they depend not only on the company, but also on the location. The most expensive are considered ABC and Neste, the cheapest St1 and Shell Express.
