Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The atmosphere is unique. You have à feeling of returning to the place one hundred years ago. À walk in style of the artists Helene Scherfbeck is to be recommended for everyone. À visit to the cafe Gamla Stan is a must: coffee and some salty pastry or sweet cakes and some Apple juice.

Drove from Stockholm to Helsinki we stopped at Ekenas for lunch. After parking the car at the townsquare, we walked around looking for the church. The colourful wooden houses are beautiful. It's not a tourist area as we were the only ones who walked on the street. We found a closed door with the sign "second hand shop" and we went inside. The owners speak very good English and they sell 'literally' everything. It's such a flea market as there are 6 houses with all different items from small thing to a big one. There is a small chapel in one of those houses and then we found the church but it was closed. Don't forget to visit the yacht basin (water side), nearby there is a park with a music stage in the middle. You will feel very relax when you sit on the bench of tammisaari beach.

Nice to have a walk on the side of the sea side and to see the vortex door, a weird recent installation that had its part of spirituality and mysterious energy. All a local to find it, it's near the main square of the town. There are also some playgrounds for children but it was too cold to stay outside.
All the bay is nice to walk on.

This is a wonderful place to walk, wandering around on the often unpaved streets looking at the brightly painted wooden houses. You are always close to the sea or the downtown area so will never get lost but you can imagine living in one of these quaint homes.

Very nice old town, especially in the summer. Some beautiful old wooden houses around the market square. Also some nice shops and cafeterias in the same neighborhood.

The old Ekenäs town is very nice and narrow with the streets and buildings. The traffic arrangement are special. In some direction you cannot drive and in one place the road will stop in the middle.

The Old twon area in Tammisaari is worth a visit and you can walk around the area and look at nice old houses. There is also some historical parts with explanation texts.
The mirrors in some house windows shows that some of the inhabitants are or have been curious whats happening.

Tammisaari, Ekenäs in Swedish, is a typical Finnish summer city right at the cost. The whole area is a part of the Swedish speaking areas west of the metropolitan Helsinki. It's really worth visiting, eat local food,
take a two - three hour lunch cruise in the archipelago! After July 21 you can try a cray fish party, Finnish style!

When I first visited the Old Town I thought I was in Sweden. It looks like old Swedish town - and most speak Swedish here too. It's just cool to walk slowly through the town - and remember to visit Café Gamla Stan - great coffee and cakes. They also have kept the old publish punishment equipment - yup in the old days you would get a public spanking if not behaving well!
