  • Lot of people, crowded, but really nothing special. Don't, lose your time, there are much more interesting attractions in Helsinki.  more »
  • A special spectacle, but it is the place to sit wherever you feel-good walking around. A good place to feel the sunshine of Northern Europe.

  • Nice place in the summer to relax. Good place for a picnic...and meet freinds. And definitely a nice place for a quick nap. Surrounded by some real nice design shops too. Close to the food market . Busy at all times. Some good places to eat and drink surrounding it. Safe
  • Very tourist-y place, offers many luxury boutiques as well as a beautiful green park. There are also plenty of events happening here during the summer, and holiday decorations towards the end of the year.
  • A windy, but beautiful park with far too few toilets. It serves as the heart of a number of outdoor events during the summer. The crowds can be big and sometimes a bit rowdy when drunk. Still I would be comfortable visiting during festivals like Vappu, even with young children.
  • This is a popular street in Helsinki lined with a great number of restaurants including an Indian one. You can rent bikes here, board th bus or get something from K-Mart, the convenience store
  • Cool place to hangout. Lots of free fun activities happen here. Beautiful nature Inthe centre of city. Next to the market Square and the water front.

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
