Sony Center: "Electronics and computers in style" Helsinki Shopping Tip by nomadig

Helsinki Shopping: 202 reviews and 199 photos

If you are hunting sleek gadgets, computers or home electronics, head towards Sony Center on the basement floor in Kämp Galleria. The smallish store is packed full with all kinds of cool toys with brushed metal finish on the outside and the bleeding edge stuff inside.

I personally like the video cameras and laptops most, but other stuff is also worth buying for -- just remember that in Finland it is politically correct to buy only Nokia phones...

Finland is not maybe the best country to buy electronics, but if you come outside EU, Norway, Iceland and Switzerland, you are entitled to get the value added tax back. Finnish hefty tax of 22% is worth spending some time at the shop and at the airport.
