“Lovely Square”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

We had a brief stop at this square while on a bike tour of Helsinki. The location is very close to the market and other sites. There was a musician playing for the crowd. Great for a quick stop.

“Very large and clean!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

It is a large square with a lot of tourists. The tourists buses are always parked there in the middle of the square which makes the photos a bit ugly. The huge stairs full of tourists adds an appeal to the place, and the view from the top of the stairs is great. The church is big a worth the visit.

“Very interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

The church at the top of the square was very interesting and worth a visit. There was plenty of shopping and restaurants. We enjoyed the Market Square just a block away as well.
