distinctive feature

, Mariehamn was founded in 1861 while Åland and Finland formed part of the mighty Russian Empire. Maria, consort of Tsar Alexander II of Russia gave the town her name. Mariehamn grew up round the farming village of Övernäs, situated on a peninsula. The harbour's built-in sheltered bays came to be of great importance. The streets of Mariehamn are wide and straight. Housing sites were large from the beginning, but today they have been divided to provide space for several houses. A distinctive

feature is the Esplanade, an avenue of lime trees stretching from west to east, from harbour to harbour. The Russian heritage is mainly responsible for the layout of the town. It follows the same basic guidelines as can be found in many Russian cities, with large avenues with promenades in the middle of the street. Apart from that, the only Russian signs left from that era is the multitude of tombstones in the graveyards in Åland.

original appearance

During the 1996 summer season a short cruise from Helsinki to Tallinn was added to ''Mariella'''s schedule in place of the nine hours she normally spent in Helsinki. These "picnic cruises" proved to be unpopular and they were not continued the following summer. When the EU ended tax free sales on routes between member states in July 1999, Viking Line added a stop at Mariehamn, Åland to the Helsinki–Stockholm route. As Åland is not a part of the EU tax union, Viking Line could continue tax-free sales on its ships. * Lawhill history on Lars Bruzelius Website * 1:75 scale model of the steel four-masted barque Lawhill, 1892-1957 Currently in the office of Erikson's Capital AB at Mariehamn, Åland '''Marie of Hesse and by Rhine''' (8 August 1824 – 8 June 1880) was a princess of the Grand Duchy of Hesse and, as '''Maria Alexandrovna''' (''in Russian Мария Александровна''), Empress consort of Alexander II of Russia.

important international

Office. Historical Section page 5 url http: www.wdl.org en item 9147 view 1 17 The Western Harbour is an important international harbour with daily traffic to Sweden, Estonia and mainland Finland. A powerful incentive for Baltic ferries to stop at Mariehamn is that, with respect to indirect taxation, Åland is not part of the EU customs zone and so duty-free goods can be sold aboard.

line brand

''Silja Serenade''''' is a cruiseferry owned by the Estonian shipping company Tallink Group (Tallink), Tallink corporate structure, retrieved 2008-09-08 operated under their Silja Line brand on a route connecting Helsinki, Finland to Stockholm, Sweden via Mariehamn. She was built in 1990 by Masa Yards, Turku, Finland. The ship was ordered on 26 October 1987 by Effoa for Silja Line traffic. The ship had a revolutionary interior layout, a promenade-street (Centerline promenade) running alongside the central axis of the ship for nearly her full length. This allowed amongst other things for a larger number of cabins with windows (today such promenades are found in the most recent ships of Royal Caribbean (Royal Caribbean International) and Color Line (Color Line (ferry operator))). Before the ship was completed Silja Line's owners Effoa and Johnson Line merged to form EffJohn, and it was to EffJohn that the Silja Serenade was delivered on 15 November 1990. On November 18 she began service on the route Helsinki–Stockholm route. Her original homeport was Helsinki, but in 1992 she was reflagged to the Ålandian shipregistry, her homeport altered to Mariehamn. This allowed Silja to make more money from her onboard slot machines and casino, due to legislation differences between Åland and the Finnish mainland. When Silja Line acquired MS ''Silja Europa'' (MS Silja Europa) in 1993 the Serenade was moved to the Turku–Mariehamn–Stockholm route. The Serenade was somewhat ill-suited for this route, her accommodations were not designed for daytime crossings and reportedly she steered poorly in the narrow archipelagoes of Stockholm, Åland and Turku. In 1995 it was decided that the Europa and Serenade switch routes, returning the Serenade to her original route, again sailing parallel to her sister ship Silja Symphony. In order to keep tax free sales on the Stockholm–Helsinki ships when the EU (European Union) changed its tax free legislation, a stop at Mariehamn was added to the route in July 1999. In early 2006, just prior to the sale of Silja Line to Tallink, Serenade and her sister had their interiors extensively rebuilt at Luonnonmaan telakka, Naantali.
