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.

    15 minute ferry from Helsinki. Nice walking tour from the pier to the King’s Gate. Windy at the shore on the day of our visit. A small and nice restaurant on the island.

    From the Market Square, I took Tram #2 to reach this attraction. Two friendly locals told me that they were getting off at this stop and would show me the way.

    The church is underground. As I approached it, I saw big rocks neatly stacked up to form its walls. Entrance fee is 5 euros for adults, no discounts. Tne decorations are simple, the inside walls are big pieces of rocks put together. There is an organ on the left side of the church.

    At 2:00 p.m the organist started playing the organ. FREE, short concert for all of us visiting this church at that time.

    Lots of shops. All kinds of food available. My wife and I sampled meats and vegetables and soups as we strolled around and took in the sights.

    Must see when visiting Helsinki. Impressive building from the outside and inside.The decor inside is amazing and shiny, impressive artwork & design. So different from catholic and protestant churches...

    A very interesting and pleasant place to visit. The entire area is a public park through which one can wander freely. By paying an admission charge (€10) you can enter and explore a number of the buildings; otherwise you can see the outside of all of them. Inside the buildings that are open there are guides who are very informed and will take as long as you want to answer your questions. There is a lot to see, the area is very peaceful, and we enjoyed it thoroughly. We spent three hours in all.

    Visited the square on a sunny day. We sat at tables and had a few drinks in the outdoor bar halfway up the stairs. The area provides a good view of that part of Helsinki including the Stockholm ferry. Nice spot to watch the world go by/

    Oh what jewels to be found inside. This is a big library with 7-8 levels. It's a book readers paradise for sure!
    Entry is free. You need to leave your coats, umbrellas and food etc at the ground floor. There are free lockers.
    The building from inside is beautiful, with gorgeous frescoes.
    The library is spic and span and well organised. Many places to sit and read in silence.
    There is a cafe downstairs but didn't check it out. Clean restrooms.
    A week is not enough in such a place.

    I stopped by here on my way back from Way Bakery so I was already full. It's a nice place to stop by and shop for food and gifts. I actually like it the most of all the market hall in Helsinki. There's a wonderful vintage Marimekko shop towards the back - GREAT items for collectors. The day that I went there was also an outdoor farmers market!

    I reached this attraction after walking from the Esplanade Park. Here are small restaurants selling unique Finnish dishes made of Moose and Deer meats, crepes, etc.

    One can also ride the ferry going to the fort , ride the Sky Wheel, experience the Saunas and Flying Cinema Tour, visit the Uspenkin Cathedral, take pictures of the statues, ride the sightseeing boats, buy crafts and souvenirs, etc.

    I visited this museum with a group and, wisely, we were split up into two manageable sized groups. This is a more or less normal house museum with almost everything left as it was upon the death of Baron Gustav Mannerheim. I enjoyed the many hunting trophies but that may not be for everyone. I was disappointed photos were not allowed but I did get a couple postcards of the interior while I was there.

    After visiting the Uspenkin Cathedral, I proceeded to walk towards this neighborhood. I enjoyed watching the facades and architecture of the buildings.

    Residents here, I think, are lucky to have a nice views of the harbor, the Market Place, cruise ships and boats, etc.
