“Nice outdoor markets”
Reviewed 31 July 2014

Lovely to walk around, nice ice creams and bars, unsure how often the markets are but it was just the local people with stalls which were nice to browse amongst.

“Lovely place to stroll or just sit and watch the world go by”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

The Esplanade area of Helsinki is so relaxing, even though it gets busy, it never really feels like you are in the middle of a city. There are lots of cafes, resaurants and shops lining both sides (which sell the most wonderful cakes!) and the central boulevard has lots of seats to sit and relax, have a coffee or an ice cream and watch the world go by! The days we were there, there were street entertainers and a music concert going on at one point. Do make sure you take a walk down to the harbour area where there is Finnish street food (much cheaper than the more fancy cafes), a great market selling lots of local produce and craft stalls. There was even a lady knitting scarves to buy as you watch! Its also nice to sit and watch the boats go in and out, and a bit further on is the big wheel you can take a ride on. Lovely!

“A delight to walk on”
Reviewed 28 July 2014

One of our most favourite boulevards, lined with trees and also the site of the Kappeli restaurant. It's a delight.

“I love Esplanadi!”
Reviewed 27 July 2014

Esplanadi is a really nice place in Helsinki to take a walk and to sit in a cafe and enjoy the lively area! A place where the sidewalk cafe culture is alive and well in. Helsinki....

“Nice stroll and people watching”
Reviewed 26 July 2014 via mobile

We were there on a lovely day in July. Nice place to find a cafe or a bar for a drink. We also found some amazing seafood. The salmon was amazing.

I highly recommend that you take a stroll through here.
