A beautiful park in the center of Helsinki. A great place to rest, enjoy the musicians, have an ice cream cone, enjoy a picnic or simply people watch.

A beautiful walk in this park is worth to be done. Next to the cruise harbor and full of shops, if you like it… Well, actually full of seagulls too.

Not overly impressed - huge numbers of tourists, crowded, nothing that caused a "wow". Not sure what more to say. Again, little history provided through booklets, tourist center.

Small, but centrally located park. Beautiful location to people watch and catch your breath on a sunny day.

I do believe where the cruise ports you just keep walking west a couple of blocks and you will be in the middle of Esplanadi. Lots of shops, snacks and salons. Public market at the port, too. Local food and art/crafts. Enjoy!
