“beautiful even when its freezing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 November 2013

It was no more than 3 degrees and the Esplanade was still beautiful in the soft winter sun and dappled light. So pleasant to meander through. A lovely spot

“Sunny Day !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 November 2013

Promenade where the Russian Court promenaded in the 1880s. Have a coffe & an ice cream ( or many other scrumptious goodies ! ) in the cafe opposite Havis Amanda. The statue with the best-looking bottom in Finland .. so she was French .. so what ? ) Walk from the commercial hub to the cultural hub along this gorgeous Esplanade, a long tree-lined park ... At the cultural end, see the President's ( former Czar's ) Palace, the harbour, the Orthodox Cathedral and the classic facades of the Swedish Embassy and the Helsinki City Hall. A few steps away is the Senate Square, one of the best-preserved neo-classical designs by Engels in existence. Aim for a dry day ... but scuttle to the cafe if it rains !

“The 'Rambla' of Helsinki”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 November 2013

After having walked around Helsinki it might be nice to rest a bit. This is the place where to do it. If you just want to sit down and cool your feet you can choose one of the benches in the park area (quite safe to do it) or then you have a variety of different kinds of restaurants to have something to eat or coffee shops which offer something lighter to eat.
From this area which begins from the main street (Mannerheimintie) of Helsinki ends up to the market place. Away down you will find many lux shops, The city house of Helsinki, the embassy of Sweden, the 'castle' of the president and in the end you will come the Uspenski Cathredral. In addition to this you will see the market place as well as see the passenger harbor with the big ships sailing between Stockholm and Helsinki every day.

“A nice walk”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

This was lovely to just walk through and take a moment to sit and relax. I believe it would be beautiful in the summer months, however you can see it is an expensive area and therefore we didn't stop off for a coffee!
