“Cool area to wander around”
Reviewed 11 July 2014

Recommended by our taxi driver, this street has stylish shops and cafes with small park areas where people meet on sunny days to chat, listen to live music etc. Just a nice place for a stroll.

“Even fun in the rain!”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

It was pouring with rain on the day we were in Helsinki, but we still enjoyed an amble along the Esplanade. It is a lovely green space right in the middle of the city with such a relaxed feel to it. If you are doing all the sights in Helsinki make sure you give yourselves time to relax here, even in the rain.

“Such a lovely park, Esplanade”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

Such a lovely park. You can buy some Ice cream an sit on a bench under lovely old trees and watch people walking by. Wonderful restaurant and cafe Kappeli "The Chapel" is also situated in Esplanade. Outdoor concerts are arranged in summer. An ideal place for picnic. There are also lots of restaurants and cafes around this lovely park.

“A green escape in downtown Helsinki”
Reviewed 1 July 2014

The Finns are apparently fresh-air fiends and the first hint of sunshine brings them out in droves to the green lawns of the tree-lined Esplanade. Loads of people of all ages were chilling out or eating lunch when I visited this centrally-located urban park which runsin a long rectangle from the main street to Hesinki's scenic harbour area. There are loads of top class shops the length of the Esplanade and a good range of inviting bars, cafes and restaurants. It's also a great place for people-watching and, unlike many other things in this high cost Scandinavian capital, is completely free of charge.
