Welcome to the tourist office
The Wikivoyage tourist office is a place where you can ask travel-related questions about any place in the world. Wikivoyage volunteers will do their best to find the relevant information (or just reply off the top of their expert heads) and reply to you.
Before you ask your question here, be sure to search our travel guide for the destination or topic you're considering. Many questions are already answered within our guides! In addition, some of our destinations have docents who have volunteered to answer questions about specific places. If neither of those avenues bear fruit, then please ask away!
This page is for travel-related questions only. Information on how to contribute to Wikivoyage is at Help:Contents, while questions about Wikivoyage itself may be posed at the Pub.

Where to buy Scottish single malt whisky in Tallinn?
Like many other Finns, I travel to Tallinn several times per year. I have heard that alcoholic beverages are generally cheaper there than in Finland. But I'm not interested in carrying six to eight crates of beer and/or cider to Helsinki.
My question is about quality single malt whiskies from Scotland. I'd like to buy one bottle of such whisky per trip, but where? I have only found advertisements about alcohol shops near the harbour, but never actually ben able to locate them. Are there alcohol shops in the harbour to Helsinki or nearby?
- There are three shopping malls in the harbour. Sadamarket is straight ahead if you're arriving with Eckerö Line or Viking Line, Norde Centrum if arriving with Tallink, plus Merekeskus further towards downtown. Each of them has at least one specialized alcohol shop (as far as I remember) with a good selection and they're just a couple of minutes of walk from each other. Though you will have no problem finding basic whisky in regular supermarkets (e.g. Rimi in Norde Centrum) and grocery stores. ϒpsilon (talk) 11:32, 21 June 2015 (UTC)
Shearwater Tasmania. Please note, Sheatwater is described as 360 kms east of Deveonport, Tasmania, which is geographically impossible . . that far east would be very, very wet. Shearwater is actually about 20 kms east of Deveonposrt.

Is thare a bridge that separates Warsaw (in Poland) from Praga ?
- These two cities are more than 600 km apart; apparently, there are several bridges on the way, not just one. Ibaman (talk) 21:02, 29 June 2015 (UTC)

- Are you maybe talking about the Praga district of Warsaw? Yes, there are a couple of bridges from there across the Wistula river to the Warsaw downtown if this is what you'd like to know? ϒpsilon (talk) 18:43, 3 July 2015 (UTC)
Limit of person transport in the UK
Hello! I am planning a group trip through Scotland by car and I would like to know how many people I could transport with a normal EU vehicle driving licence and without a person transport allowance! Thank you! Regards --JCS (talk) 22:39, 4 July 2015 (UTC)
- There are some conditions where you can drive a minibus (9-16 people) if it is for non commercial use, but if you are driving a car then it will be dictated by the number of seat-belts in the vehicle. A 6 or 7 seater (Galaxy, Zafira etc,) should be no issue. If it is a school or club group though I would check specifically with the UK about your driving license. --Traveler100 (talk) 05:19, 5 July 2015 (UTC)
