Hop off the tram or bus by Lasipalatsi. Do this on a summer morning between 6:30 and 7:30. Walk along Mannerheimintie towards Esplanade Park. Continue through the park past the Havis Amanda fountain to the Market Square. This is just one example of an enjoyable walk in Helsinki. Thanks to its nice size and carefully maintained buildings representing different cultural periods, Helsinki is a great miniature city for walkers. The archipelago off the coast of Helsinki with all its islands is quite unique in the world. The archipelago has not really been utilised as a tourist attraction, even though there are already quite many places you can visit among the islands. Helsinki’s archipelago easily beats Stockholm’s archipelago, for example, in terms of its diversity and openness, even though our Swedish cousins have known how to benefit from the market value of their own archipelago at least a hundred-fold. Compare for yourself!
