“Just a street.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 20, 2012

The street is pretty and wide with a park in the center. It is lined with shops and restaurants, but nothing really memorable. I wouldn't say to go out of your way to stroll on this street, but chances are you will be on it anyway as it begins near the water and the market.

“A must visit often has free concerts”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

We visited in late August. The Esplanade was convenient to our hotel so we walked it both nights we were in Helsinki. There were free concerts both evenings. There are plenty of stores to look at. As far shopping it is definitely not cheap. The Esplanade is fine during the day too. One can walk down the Esplanade to eat at Market Place or the Food Hall and to catch the boat to Suomenlinna Fortress.

“Park in the middle of the city”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2012

A nice walk in Esplanade is a must in Helsinki. There are some really nice finnish design shops and cafes and restaurants in the area, also worth visiting. In summer time also nice (small) outdoor concerts.

“A very pleasant little park”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 12, 2012

I really enjoyed strolls down the Esplanade. It was very pretty, very European, seemed very safe. Nothing like the ramblas in Barcelona. Plenty of shops and cafe's to explore if desired.
