The Swedish town and port of Kapellskar is located on the Baltic Sea coast, around 90 km to the north of Stockholm. The town is in Norrtalje Municipality which is in Stockholm county in east central Sweden. The municipality was created in 1971 through the amalgamation of several former municipalities and is now the largest and northernmost municipality in Stockholm County. Many of the houses in the region are summer cottages, only inhabited during summertime. This is due to its geographical location by the Stockholm archipelago, which makes it popular among Stockholmers and tourists.
It is the most northern port in "the ports of Stockholm" and is an important port for both passengers and cargo departing to destinations in Finland, Norway, Russia and the Baltics. The port is popular because it has a very short approach which makes it ideal for fast sailings and turnarounds.
The Estonian town of Paldiski used to be a former Russian naval base and is located on the Pakri Peninsular in the north west of Estonia, around 50 km from Tallinn. The town's port became a Russian naval base in the 18th century and is when the Russians renamed it Baltiyskiy Port, or Baltic Port, but the town's present name was adopted in 1933. In the early 1960's the town became a Soviet Navy nuclear submarine training centre and was also home to two land-based nuclear reactors and was the largest facility of its kind in the Soviet Union. As a result of the town's important it was completely closed off with barbed wire surrounding the town until the last Russian warship left in 1994.
The Pakri Peninsular is famous for its limestone cliffs and for its lovely beaches. It is also the location to the highest lighthouse in Estonia and home to rare black Guillemots which look a little bit like Penguins.
From the town's port, ferry services depart to Hanko in Finland, Lubeck in Germany and Kapellskar in Sweden.
