Reviewed October 2, 2013

This is one of the most gorgeous places in Helsinki, but budget-concious travellers beware! The shops on this stretch as very posh, so don't expect any steals and deals. Simply strolling down the Esplanade is enough though. There is just something magical about the way the sun hits the beautiful buildings. The market is close by, as are a host of other attractions.

Esplanade Park was well kept and even in the brisk air it was a nice walk from Market Square toward the Central district of Helsinki after a day of sightseeing. There were plenty of places to sit and watch people.

We had a day in Helsinki on our Baltic Cruise and in the morning had the tour round all the major sights by tour bus. In the afternoon we spent some time starting at the harbour which is really pretty and photogenic and then toured the market which had many good stalls with local goods, ideal for gifts. The harbour is just down from the Cathedral so when you stand with your back to it about 200 yards straight in front of you.
We then made our way along the esplanade where there are many places for a good lunch and is the home of the many designers shops both on and just off the main street. Nice area to people watch from the outdoor cafes and bistros. A good end to our day in Helsinki.

Great place to stroll and people watch away from the bustle of the adjacent storefronts. Often you can find musicians and street performers plying their craft. Children were enthralled by the giant soap bubbles being made with huge hoops and catapulted into the air. Also fun guessing the dog breeds with their human companions.
