“Big area, clean, good views of govt buildings”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 8, 2014

We were on a tour and stopped here for about 15 minutes. I climbed all the way to the top, only to find out that the Helsinki Cathedral (White Church) was closed due to a wedding, so ... we came back later - 7 of us and more leisurely enjoyed visited the square.
Helsinki Cathedral is beautiful, and the view of the surrounding square is great.
It is very close to the Kauppatori Market Square, which is also worth while visiting.

“Lovely Square”
4 of 5 bubbles 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 bubbles 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 bubbles 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.
