  • Its one of popular street in Helsinki, place is very nice at day or night. There are also few bar in side and atmosphere and view is stunning. Good place for spending time.
  • Beautiful park directly to the city, the market and the harbour. I've been there in February so in my opinion it's quite beautiful to visit in spring or summer.
  • Beautiful esplanade in the middle of Helsinki that adds some green space into an urban centre. I can only imagine what it’s beauty would in the summer time but in the winter it’s well lit and quite festive. If you’re in Helsinki it’s pretty hard to avoid since it’s near all the main attractions of the city. Check it out and make sure to stop and have a look at some of the monuments on display.
  • Beautiful park downtown. Find a bench, a wall, or a piece of grass.....and people watch, read a book, or just relax. Right in the middle of everything. Restaurants, shopping, sights, and bars are at your fingertips. A must-experience if you are lucky enough to visit Helsinki. Close to many historical points, Senate Square, and the harbor!
  • Love this part of Helsinki. Summer so vibrant with a lot of locals and turists..musicians..good gastronomy and great shopping area around
