Forum is a shopping centre in Helsinki, Finland, opened in 1985 and located between the streets of Mannerheimintie, Simonkatu, Yrjönkatu and Kalevankatu.The original Forum building is located in the corner of Mannerheimintie and Simonkatu. The shopping centre has been constantly expanded to also fill other buildings in the city block.The shopping centre includes an underground parking lot, with connections to the nearby surroundings, including to Stockmann.As well as numerous businesses, the Forum city block includes the privately owned Amos Anderson art museum and the Forum medical and dental health centre.Forum is the only privately owned shopping centre in the Finnish capital area. Bilinguality is emphasised in the shopping centre, because it is owned by Finland-Swedish organisations, most notably Föreningen Konstsamfundet, which was founded in 1940 by Amos Anderson. The organisation supports Finland-Swedish culture and publications, and deals out grants, which amount up to 3 million euro per year. This is financed by the rent from the Forum shopping centre building.

  • A good mix og shops, but a bit "messy". Had some trouble finding my way here, but for the stores I found I liked it :) 
  • Small Mall, located in the main commercial center of the city, has interesting shops, 2 victoria secret ´ 's for women and an electronic shop in the ground floor for men.

  • A big mall, located in the heart of helsinki. Multiple quality stores for clothing, and restaurants ranging from middle eastern food to Mac donald's. The lowest floor is conpletely dedicated to the largest electronics store in town, which I as a tech enthusiastic enjoy a lot.
  • Good size mall. Pretty crowded, selection of stores could be better. Location is good, really close to train station and about 15-20 minutes walk from harbour.
  • Most swedish spot after Stockmann. Place has connection tunnel to Asematunneli underground network level 0 as also to Stockmann from garage and Kamppi from level 2. Lots cafes and restaurants and shops.
  • It ok for what it is. Full of basic chain shops. Nothing special
  • Not only is this a great shopping centre with every store you need, but also connects the Helsinki Railwaystation to the Kamppi shopping centre, so you can travel indoors the whole way.
