Beautiful park in the center of the city. Great way to relax from the shopping on both sides or on the way to the harbor.

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.

This is a lively "park" with a lot going on the both sides of it. If you want to go shopping or have a breakfast / lunch this is the spot for you. Or just sit on the benches and enjoy the vivid atmosphere.

Flowers, some statues and enormous trees. Walked it everyday on my way to market square. It’s a good place to just sit and watch.

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!
