Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I love this place with all the books and the service.
    Can’t understand why it always needs to be so warm inside though
    Cannot either understand why there are so few Swedish books. Swedish is after all the second official language of the country

    sauna here can be an amazing experience especially for a foreigner .Kaurila is surly as traditional as a wood-stove sauna summer house could be. The dim candle-lit sauna gives a smooth moist heat, and change room is rustic , so if you are in Helsinki do not miss it .

    As I walked various areas of Helsinki, that this company has branches closer to each other. I briefly visited the m and noted their beautiful products. I was tempted many times some of the products that I liked.

    Since I shall be travelling to several more countries after Finland, shopping and dragging a heavy suitcase is out of the question. So sorry Marimekko!

    Business is as usual in spite of the lack of foreign customers arriving by boat to the West Harbour next to this big electronics store. Especially huge televisions and home office equipment are selling well as people want to upgrade the comfort of their homes. As most purchases can be returned without cost there is a large outlet on top floor with four categories of reduced priced items.

    I looked online for a Helsinki craft coop and Okra came up. Have just come from Okra and it’s a must visit. Crafts from multiple outstanding Finnish artists. Easy to find at Senate square, across the street from Christmas market. Ceramics crafts lady from Lapland working in shop today, she is very personable and also helped with tax forms as I live in a nonEU country.

    Every Finn has held a piece of Arabia tableware in hand at some point of their life. The factory took the historical name of the location when it was established already in 1874. Over the years the brand has stood for quality both in design and production remaining the obvious choice for a new home. Now the vintage pieces from 1950's to 1980's are so sought after that they are sold even in Arabia shops. The rich archives present endless material for new reproductions as well.

    Pentik is a Finnish design company from Posio, Lapland. They have the northernmost ceramics factory in the world. The factory is situated in the Arctic Circle. Their idea is to get inspiration from pure Nordic nature.

    I really love their natural colors. Both bedclothes, kitchen textiles and bathroom textiles are very beautiful. I am also interested in their decoration products like vases, candles and candle holders. They have beautiful mugs, cups, glasses, plates, bowls, cookware and toys, too. Notice that some of those products have been made in Finland but not all.

    Pentik also produces some Finnish delicacies. My family especially loves cloudberry marmalade, cranberry marmalade, gingerbread coffee, apple-cinnamon fudge, cranberry-white chocolate cookies, bilberry-chocolate cookies, tiramisu fudge and handmade apple-cinnamon glogg (nonalcoholic mulled wine) without artificial coloring. They all are very tasty and good ideas for presents, too. I would like to taste their nonalcoholic spruce sprout sparkling drink, too.

    Pentik has several stores in Finland. I visited Helsinki Arabia135 Outlet (Pentik Arabiakeskus Outlet) in the same building with other outlets and the free Design Museum Arabia. The other Pentik store in Helsinki is located in Shopping Center Tripla (Mall of Tripla).

    ヘルシンキ市内でククサを探しましたが、良いお土産はありませんでした。 ついにこの店を見つけました。 実際、マーケットスクエアには屋台とお店があり、そのお店では最高級のククサも販売されています。 とても質が良く、私が探していたものです。嬉しくて3個買いました。おそらくヘルシンキで最高のククサショップでしょう。
    In Helsinki, we searched for kukusa, but we didn't have any good souvenirs. Finally found this store. In fact, Market Square has stalls and shops that sell the finest kukusa. I bought three. Probably the best Kukusa shop in Helsinki.

    If you are looking for a rare book, if you want to buy a book for a fair price or if you just want to have a great time, this book shop is definitely worth visiting! Even if you don't find the book you are looking for you won't be disappointed:)

    Love for Finnish cotton prints has largely influenced the existence of this vintage shop in Kannelmäki suburb. The best known label Marimekko is well represented also from the early years at Muija, which has even taken its name from one of their prints. The fabrics, mainly curtains all well washed and ironed have been organized in rows by designer as Ishimoto, Isola or by the type of print. Vintage designs from Tampella and Finlayson are also sold here, as well as Marjatta Metsovaara, even in new quality reproductions. A huge selection of tableware, glass, ceramics mainly from 1950's to 1980's fills the new larger premises by Kannelmäki local train station, easily reached from central Helsinki.

    You can get just a drink or a meal at this food hall. Plenty of bars and restaurants to choose from. The selection of food is quite amazing and food from all parts of the World can be eaten here. Most of the restaurants have free WiFi. On a sunny day there is plenty of seating and tables outside. You can have just a cake or croissant, various types of different soups to a full meal, plus hot and cold drinks. Well worth a look around.

    The flagship store has been enlarged and occupies now also the front corner of North Esplanade facing the park. The past year has been rather good for the iconic Finnish company unlike other textile manufacturers. Our mostly female cabinet ministers have been a constant sight in their colourfull, loose fitting Marimekko dresses on the evening news.

    As a knife novice I was given excellent advice from to lovely girl in this Töölö shop. The complimentary knife sharpening lesson was gratefully received. The knife I eventually purchased has been perfect. Many thanks for a superb shopping experience and for the knowledgeable, patient and wonderful staff.

    This shop is full of Moomin products. You find both souvenirs, toys and household goods. They may have some good offers, too. I bought some Moomin mugs and Moomin tea.

    A large shop at the corner of Kauppatori offers Finnish handicrafts made from wool, cotton, silk, linen, ceramics, glass, beads, leather and wood by several artisans from all over the country. If you prefer a souvenir which is not mass produced in Asia there is a lot to choose from and they even sell wool yarn to knit yourself.
