A stroll, an ice cream, and crowd watching on a bench on a lovely late summer day - no better place in Helsinki than the Esplanadi Park. It's not the biggest park in Helsinki, but by all means the most busy and teeming with people most hours of the day. Buskers are sharing the park by apparently being allocated time... More

The Esplanadi Park is a narrow strip of green between the two streets of Pohjoisesplanadi (North Esplanade) and Etäläesplanadi (South Esplanade).

The adjacent streets are lined with cafés, upscale boutiques and hotels. It is... More

Just a small park, no comparison to Tiergarten or Hyde Park or anything like that. Wouldn't even be on the tourist map in many European cities.

A beautiful boulevard lined with stately structures frames up this park with its well manicured floral displays, sculptures and visitors.

See how Finnish people get crazy when it's warm and sunny. For once you are able to enjoy some drinks in public without police interupting. Great place for drinks, coffee, ice cream, picnic, reading, day dreaming...

Esplanadi Park is a long green space extending from Mannerheimkatu to the Harbor. Trees, grass, benches, paths, espresso and ice cream carts, and lots of people. Great shopping on either side.

Buy a ticket to Helsinki from the ticket machine, selecting a Day Pass for a return journey, cost €12 each. The train takes about 30minutes to... More
