All there really is are these small cheapy stores, good to buy a little food or some memorabilia, but not worth going out of your way for. The walk down the harbour is nice though and worth doing.

The water is frozen and it is nice to see. A walk along the coast line is a must. It is quite and calm.

We enjoyed this area of Helsinki, the Park was beautifully decorated with Christmas lights. The buildings are beautiful in Empire style. We were there on New Years Eve but I am sure this is an all year round pleasurable place to walk.

The decorative lights in the park are very stylish at Christmas and New Year time, gold and silverish. It is especially beautiful when there is fresh snow on the ground.

Take a stroll down the gorgeous Esplanadi park and sit for a while enjoying ice cream, coffee and people-watching. Beautiful and relaxing in the summer, a bit harsh in the winter - but that's Finland.

The Esplanadi is a nice swath of park that cuts through the middle of Helsinki and is definitely worth a visit. On weekends, ethnic food kiosks are set up for some very good, inexpensive food.

Walking along the "Esplanadi park" is very peaceful and relaxing. The atmosphere is enjoyable and you can understand how high is the quality of life here in Finnland

You wont go wrong among the hordes of tourists and locals around this place. Lots of souvenir shops and there was an open air market selling all kinds of reindeer-related stuff when I was here. Good way to spend a couple of hours.
