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.

    Short 20 min ferry to the island from the marketplace in Helsinki. Took a pre-arranged tour in English from Suomenlinna island harbor. Excellent guide learned a lot. Walked all over the island that not only is a bastion fort but also residential for Helsinki folks, open prison and sea scouts. Did a 10am tour which was good as it got really busy after that. Restaurants/cafes and shops on island. Had great sunny weather. Good spot for picnic too.

    This marvellous building was constructed in the years 1960 inside a rock formation. It is my opinion the greatest attraction of Helsinki. There is a deep sensation of peace inside even for those, like me, who are not religious.

    Some of the best food in Helsinki can be found at reasonable prices at the market halls in the city. This one is the largest and most oriented to tourists.

    Food was very good, with a wide variety of seafoods, sandwiches and soups. There are a range of prices, based on each stall or restaurant. One can also eat outside.

    Only open during the day and closes at 5PM.

    Our cruise ship shuttle bus dropped us off right in front of this huge church on the big plaza. So we had to linger a while to gaze up at in. There were crowds of people going in, so we did not, wanted to avoid the crowds. It lies on a high point on the landscape, so you can see the dome from many areas.

    This beautiful sanctuary, an open air museum, has lush greenery, a variety of fauna, scenic locations and many 17-18th century houses that have been relocated from various parts of Finland.
    The houses and their interiors exhibit the traditional life from the the bygone era. Most of the houses have guides dressed up in traditional costumes and they animatedly share information.
    There was no ticket to go around the place. There's a nominally priced ticket only in case you want to visit the interiors of the houses. They provide a map of the area with proper guidance about the routes.The ticket is a must have for those who love history and culture.It was a sheer delight for a period era buff like me. Being inside those houses was like being transported back to those times.
    There are cafes and ice cream kiosks in case you want to have something.
    The place was sheer bliss to be in and was one of the major highlights of the Helsinki visit for us. Highly recommended.
    The visit could take about 2 -4 hours depending upon how leisurely your pace is.
    The bus ride from Helsinki is about 20 min.

    In a city of lots of large buildings from other eras, this one stands out for its size and its location, set aside from the crowded city. An impressive church, brick architecture.

    It is an amazing modern building conceived as the social and cultural centre of the city. It is worth a long walk on the interior where you can find the library, a cosy cowork space, a cafe, a child space, and much more.

    This is the big open square in front of the Cathedral. Our cruise ship's shuttle bus dropped us here, so we stopped for a while to take it all in. Impressive official buildings all around. Some places set up to sell you snacks. Lots of stone, no shade. You have to walk off the square to find the commercial city.

    A very pretty city park, toward the center. A good place to take a break from the stone and brick of the city. Well-landscaped, old fashioned, places to sit if the weather is mild.

    It is the main terminal for cruise ships within Finland and outside. We took a silja line cruise ship from Stockholm and arrived here.

    The Athenaeum stands as a stalwart temple of art across from the train station. It is a perfect introduction to Finland ‘s classical artists . There are also examples of other European artists. This year there is a superb retrospective of Jarnefelt - not to be missed

    We found the design of the exterior of this big train station to be impressive. Of the 19th Century. Inside it is functional with trains to various towns in Finland and suburban lines. Cafes to buy drinks and food.

    We took the ferry from Helsinki to Stockholm and it was such a bargain price to have a small cabin to ourselves we saved a bunch on flights/hotel. It was a bit of a jolty ride at times, and I did wake up at around 3.50am when we reached the Åland Islands because of that, but I don't regret it because I went on deck and got some beautiful pictures of the archipelago and the sunset. The several hours before reaching Stockholm were filled with so many beautiful islands and houses on the lake to see so highly recommend getting a coffee and sitting on deck 2 hours before arrival. Food and drink was predictably expensive, but not too bad. There was onboard entertainment but we didn't attend. There's a duty free style shop that's quite extensive also. The bar at the back sun deck was great, but the benches all along the side were also wonderful for sight seeing. Definitely the recommended way to enter Stockholm.
