“15 minute walk down the Esplanade is a "must" when visiting Helsinki”
Reviewed December 6, 2012

This city center park is a “must” yet quick stroll for a first time visit to Helsinki. Be sure to check out the Mermaid statue at the end near the sea – it’s a bit of an icon in Helsinki.

“A must to promenade”
Reviewed November 21, 2012

It is the most attractive street in Helsinki. A destination if only to look although it had bars and restaurants besides some of the most expensive shops.

“Great for a walk”
Reviewed November 11, 2012

The Esplanade is really two streets, one on the waterfront and the other a street back. Great for wandering and window shopping. There is, by the way, a Hard Rock Cafe on the street back from the waterfront. Can't go wrong with the "South Carolina" and a beer.

“Just a nice street”
Reviewed November 4, 2012

Nice wide street with a public space through the middle, nice and convenient to visit but nothing too special. Maybe because I came in early November when it's colder and I was simply walking through instead of hanging around.

Really enjoyable walk with lots of shops to browse in. Lovely coffee shops to sit at and soak up the sun.
