"Esplanadi Park - this is a..." Parks Tip by DianeDundee

Parks, Helsinki: 14 reviews and 22 photos

Esplanadi Park - this is a long narrow park in the centre of Helsinki which became a famous 'strolling' area in the 19th century. It is still a great place to wander on a sunny day - see the world go by and watch the street entertainment. Stop at the Kappeli Cafe (glass cafe) which is famous in Helsinki - for coffee and to soak up the atmosphere. Shop in the shops on the streets surrounding the park - look out for the Finnish design shops such as Marimekko.

Address: Central Helsinki!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
