  • Good location of the park in center of Helsinki, there you can find market,ferry,tramm within 5 minute walking distance! 
  • There are two northern and southern Esplanade. The Esplanade Park is. A nice place to walk around slowly, and watch people, or sit on the bench, if it holds up. Now there's a beautiful lighting. In the summer it koristetaan flowers. Last summer, the trees was dressed in a red ball of fabrics. Will be there even more. At both ends of the Park is a popular Cafe/restaurants. My favorite is the Esplanade Cafe/restaurant from the market square. Opposite the stage music. Ice cream kiosk can be found also. The port and the market square is the little baggage.

  • 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!
