“great Finnish design!”
Reviewed 3 September 2013

We love design, so it was exciting to see the district of Helsinki that is full of beautiful buildings and sculptures, from many decades. The Design Museum had a small but intense series of displays of popular and artsy design by locals. There were also a range of memorable cafes nearby.

“Great Decorating Ideas”
Reviewed 31 May 2013

Great area for shopping for household goods and to get decorating ideas. Too bad you can't shrink the fabulous furniture so you could bring them back home with you.

“The only district to stay in during your visit!”
Reviewed 17 December 2012 via mobile

What can I say except impressive?! We loved everything about it, from the shops, restraunts, the people, and atmosphere. This district was close to the railway station and the city square and is my favorite district in Helsinki.
