  • The Esplenade. One of Helsinkis most beautiful and nicest streets with Walking path in the middle. Lots of Caffè s & restaurants. The " Kapeli " restaurant with its outdoor patio is a nice plays for a lunch.
  • One of the main streets of Helsinki city centre when it comes to nice coffee shops and some other shops. It is also a bit pricey around there but the quality of the coffee shops is actually worth it. Kämp, one of the most prestigious hotels of the city and usually where the international stars stay while in town, is here and while it can be quite expensive to be hosted there, it also has a nice bar and restaurant where the food is tasty and of good quality.
  • Get a coffee from Torre and come here to enjoy the people passing through
  • Very nice island with a great view of the ocean. You can get there via ship from Helsinki.
  • Lovely spot for a lazy stroll, picnic or just people watching. Get some ice cream, listen to buskers and enjoy!
