“Interesting park, lots of eateries, shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

There were 7 of us, just strolling from the Senate Square and Kauppatori Market Square, on our way back to the Scandic Grand Marina Hotel.
It's a nice stroll, see the sights, go into various department stores or shops. Lots of nice restaurants and eateries. Colorful leisurely walk. It's one place you should go to get a good all-around idea of what Helsinki has.
Good place for souvenirs too.

What a nice way to spend some time in Helsinki. There are shops and cafes galore. The park and fountains are lovely. I recommend taking a stroll down this lively street!

“Park with food and shopping”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

The Esplanade connects the Market Square area with the busy shopping centres closer to the railway station. The park isn't large, but nice to walk through - or to sit down and relax a bit. I found the shopping opportunities lining the streets more interesting. There are also a couple of places to eat here.

“Vibrant and colourful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

In summer at least, this has a real holiday atmosphere. Relaxed and not too crowded, and of course in July we could enjoy it through the long light evening.
