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.

    Really nice good options here and well priced. Good place to try the local meat and fish all very fresh. Nicely decorated with wooden stalls, enjoyed wandering and snacking!

    Stopped for a quick walk through while waiting for the ferry to the island. I found it mildly interesting with many of the stalls selling the same kind of things. Expensive either way you cut it. We did buy some canned sardines and they were $10. Time for the ferry before we spend more.

    Best choice was on Saturday when there seemed to be more stalls. Unlike most places they're not full of rubbish but nice homemade gifts. Everything from magnets to fur hat/ gloves, wooden items, knitted clothes, glassware. Nice place to wander for a while.
    Also some food stalls which seem to be there most days.

    Used to be my favorite department store in Finland, however there is now a limited amount of high end brands mixed in with average brands.

    It’s a lovely place to visit and stroll around. Market stall traders very friendly and welcoming. Food is good value and it was lovely to sit outside in the frosty air and watch the world go by. Market stalls generally full of touristy souvenirs when we visited in March, but there were some really good hand made items too.

    After visiting the Stockman Department Store, I crossed the street and visited this Shopping Center. Initially! I thought it was a hotel, but when I saw some of its customers coming out of the store with shopping bags, I realized that it is another big store.

    I briefly walked around and checked out their merchandises and prices. Did not buy anything here, having purchased stuffs that I needed at the Stockman Department Store.

    The biggest shopping mall in the eastern part of town has remained quite the same over the troubled times as the customers are locals not tourists. Nowadays it offers maybe even better shopping opportunities than the city center under one roof. There is a huge movie theater, many cafeterias and restaurants and a metro station with bus connections futher on. The old shopping centre beside it has become an equally popular ethnic food area with big Turkish supermarkets.

    Many retailers have changed recently at the exclusive shopping center next to hotel Kämp but the new ones seem ready for customers. The shoe stores on the ground floor have made room for minimalistic Scandinavian furniture and upstairs multitalented Klaus Haapaniemi has moved to an own corner with magic prints in silk and cotton made in Europe. The Museum of Photography has changing exhibitions in the basement, currently the ashtonishing pictures by Vivian Maier found only after her death.

    Situated in the outstanding granite palace of former Suomi insurance company Forsblom has room for three separate exhibitions simultaneosly. The biggest in March was dedicated to the late Jukka Mäkelä and his large blue grey abstracts. Interesting and expensive pieces of art were also displayed in the office area like the ceramic statues by Kim Simonsson, one glazed shining platium, the other covered with feathers, nylon fibre and painted green. Jacob Hashimoto's hanging work "The drift of Time's Fundamental Geography" consists of small, handmade wooden frames filled with multicolored materials.

    Though situated at the edge of the Design District facing the Agricola Church the private fleamarket has gained popularity during recent times.
    The basic selection upstairs consists of everyday clothing, bags, jewellery and tableware items. Downstairs through the narrow staircase is a different world with exquisite antique furniture, interior design and miscellaneous bric-a-brac.

    Anybody under 18 years old with artistic aspirations can join in for free the different ongoing projects at Annantalo in the center of Helsinki. Two exhibitions are now open, one of jewellery made by children from surplus materials and the Museum of Graphic Arts. Spanning over 35 years it visualizes the techniques teached to the young artists as well as showing their collected works. The building, which is over hundred years old used to be a school.
