A very nice park in the heart of Helsinki. Some commotion even in the evening in the early autumn. A lot of people taking a walk and there are several restaurants and bars close by. Nice for an evening stroll.

The Esplanadi is a wonderful institution in Helsinki. You can sit and have a rest...in the center of the busy city. It is a great place to observe people and get to know the inhabitants of Helsinki.

I do believe where the cruise ports you just keep walking west a couple of blocks and you will be in the middle of Esplanadi. Lots of shops, snacks and salons. Public market at the port, too. Local food and art/crafts. Enjoy!
