How this place has escaped the developers, I am not sure. The location is right on the water front and offers great views 270 degrees East, South to Estonia and West.

Kaivopuisto is a green area in the posh neighbourhood of Eira by the seaside. It's a popular spot for pickniks and walking trips. Last of April and First of May Kaivopuisto gets really crowded when Helsinki people gather to celebrate together.

Have a wonderful stroll on the embankment with a magnificent view. This is a must - unless you come from a sea side town from another Nordic country. Quality cafes available.

In winter this is the place for sledge and in summer you can enjoy a picnic and park concerts on flat rocks and lawns. Leafy Kaivopuisto-Brunnsparken with its embassies and villas are the oldest and most famous of the parks in Helsinki

We stopped here briefly to relax and eat the delicious strawberry that we bought from the local market before returning to the cruise-ship. This is a stop on the hop-on, hop-off bus which is a very nice way to see things around this beautiful city.
