Medical care, in my experience, has been excellent. - Jan 28, 2013
Tick-borne encephalitis is a recommended vaccine. Health care is adequate, but anything complicated gets medi-vaced. There are some interesting cures recommended here -- goose grease for a cough, vodka for a lot of other things. - Oct 28, 2012
Acceptable. And, Helsinki is a 2-hour ferry ride away. - Oct 6, 2012
The medical care here is pretty good. Friends have their babies here. The water quality is good and safe. The embassy nurse is efficient and attentive. - Sep 8, 2010
Good health care, although particularly serious issues would be handled in Helsinki or London. - Aug 9, 2009
