Vantaa is located to the north from Helsinki, in Southern Finland. The Helsinki Airport is located in Vantaa, 30 minutes from Helsinki City centre. Most of the main roads (Ring Road III, Tuusulanväylä, Hämeenlinna motorway), run through Vantaa, which makes the location very attractive if you are traveling by car. Vuosaari Harbour is located at the end of Ring Road III, only 15 min from Tikkurila.
Tikkurila Station is one of the busiest railway stations in Finland. Most of the trains leaving from Helsinki Central Railway Station go through Tikkurila, including Allegro, the train going to St. Petersburg.
Getting around in the city is easiest by train (I, P that connect Tikkurila to Myyrmäki via the Airport), bus, car, taxi or bike!
