West Harbour, Helsinki

West Harbour (Finnish: Länsisatama, Swedish: Västra hamnen) is a passenger and cargo harbour in the Jätkäsaari district of Helsinki, Finland, in the southwestern part of the Helsinginniemi peninsula. The Länsisatama harbour area also includes the Munkkisaaren laituri pier on the west side of Munkkisaari, used by cruiseliners.

It has two passenger terminals: West Terminal 1 (Finnish: Länsiterminaali 1, Swedish: Västra terminalen 1) and West Terminal 2, which opened in February 2017. West Terminal 1 is used mainly by passenger ships from Helsinki to Saint Petersburg. West Terminal 2 is specialised in fast scheduled traffic to Tallinn, Estonia. As of 2013, Tallink and Eckerö Line operate routes to Tallinn, and St. Peter Line to Saint Petersburg.

Building a new residential area for 15 thousand inhabitants in Jätkäsaari is currently underway, after the container traffic in West Harbour was moved to Vuosaari Harbour in 2008.

Immediately next to West Harbour, in the Munkkisaari quarter, there is the Helsinki shipyard in Hietalahti. However, it is not counted as part of the harbour area of Länsisatama.

Länsisatama is also the 20th neighbourhood of the city, extending around the harbour.

Из центра сюда и отсюда в центр можно доехать на трамваях 9 и 6T. Ходят часто. Билеты лучше купить в автомате, т.к. у водителя на 0,5€ дороже. Билет действителен 70 минут.

Удобный терминал. Много стоек для регистрации. Ранее кафе с кофе, выпечкой и сандвичами. Вполне можно скоротать время до первого парома.
