    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.

    Picteresque park in the heart of the city. Ideal place for a picnic. Home to high end restaurants and open air concerts.

    Walked through this park on the way to the ferry and it was very nice. Statues and walkways were great and it's in a neat spot.

    Great areas to hang out is when the weather is nice. They make good use of the space when they get the chance, e.g. food festivals.

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.
