Welcome to Kapellskär
Kapellskär is so tiny it can’t really even be described as a village – there’s little to it except for a campsite, a hostel and a large ferry terminal. The coastline, however, is spectacular, dotted with small fishing villages, and the surrounding countryside is delightfully pastoral. Most people come here for ferry connections to Finland and Estonia.
There’s also a small memorial for the 852 passengers killed in the Estonia ferry disaster of September 1994; it’s up the hill across the main road from the ferry terminal.
