jussi from Finland wrote about Nuuksio National Park 5 years, 4 months ago
Nuuksio is a very nice national park close to Helsinki. Nuuksio is highland and there are a lot of small lakes and some (easy to reach) hiking routes. Definitely worth visiting during the summer time. You can get there from Helsinki even using public transportation!
Perhaps the word "party" does not exactly discribe this restaurant. Anyway, it's a restaurant which opened it's doors very recently. It's a sort of Finnish interpretation of German beer-house with authentically clad waitresses and live Finnish/German music to pick up your drinking spirit!
Not to be missed. The largest department store in Northern Europe and was listed to the top-ten in the world by NY Times in terms of quality.
Everything from fashion to food & souvenirs. A couple of times a year they organize a sale called 'hullut päivät' (Finnish for 'Crazy Days') with very good offers. You can't really miss it, since they decorate the entire place with tacky yellow plastic ghosts and other crap (www.hullutpaivat.com).
vesterinen from Finland wrote about Bistro Nolla 4 years, 10 months ago
A laid back bar with a design-esque school cafeteria like interior: Very chic! Crowd consists of the Helsinki hipsters and freelance types leeching off the local WiFi networks, so be prepared to find the grown up ex-skateboarders in AA hoodies and skinny jeans. One of the few places in Helsinki where the volume level does not shoot up automatically to annoy the hell out of you. Great Club Sandwich. Definitely worth a visit and a mellow chat over a beer or two.
sami from Finland wrote about Sinebrychoff Park 4 years, 8 months ago
The perfect place to have a picnic during the warm summer months! The young and the used-to-be-young people gather here to enjoy the sun, which in this fine place shines well into the night, thanks to its fortunate, sunset facing geography. Can get really busy during good weather.
calle replied 4 years, 8 months ago:
Such a nice story. I especially liked the "used-to-be-young" part. The same way I like the people living in Punavuori :)
sami replied 4 years, 8 months ago:
Thanks Kalle! I think that's why we both live in Punavuori, they accept both the young and the old! How's the back-ache?
calle replied 4 years, 8 months ago:
Oh well...quite OK at the moment - depends on the weather. But what about your brand new artificial hip joint? I've heard that shaking one's groovy thang can get a bit tricky with such an apparatus. Please share your experiences since I am expecting to get one of those in a few years time.
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Restaurant Kosmos 4 years, 8 months ago
Easily the most stylish restaurant in Helsinki. This elegant place is favored by artists, politicians and the intelligentsia in Helsinki.
The restaurant was founded in 1924. Its interior was designed by world renowned Alvar Aalto.
My personal favorite dish there is Wienershnitzel, which is just about perfect.
ace from Finland wrote about Linnunlaulu 4 years, 10 months ago
Linnunlaulu bridge over the railroad is a great place to have a break when walking around Töölönlahti. All the trains going to and coming from the central railway station go under the bridge. The surrounding villas are also worth a look.
suviko from Finland wrote about Café Tin Tin Tango 4 years, 9 months ago
Café Tin Tin Tango is a versatile place: a cafe, bar, pastry shop, small gallery and a self-service laundry in the back and even a sauna cabin for 6 on reservation. They serve breakfast from morning till past midnight and you can eat a salad or a submarine as lunch. The bar is fully licensed - one person in a table can be drinking wine while others are still grabbing a very late breakfast. Tango playing on the background gives this place the finishing touch that makes it a favorite and living room of locals of all ages.

sani from Finland wrote about Kannunkulma 5 years, one month ago
Kannunkulma (known as "Kannu") is the most popular nightclub-restaurant nearby Espoon Keskus.
Its quite small, nice and cozy place with inexpensive prices.
Karaoke @ Tuesdays & Sundays, striptease on Wednesdays.
Every weekend young people from all over Espoo are coming to paaaartyyy! So be there ;)
And for smokers: this one of the few nightclubs left that allows you to have your cigarette wherever you wish - instead of leaving your seats and drinks by going outside.
It's a bit worn out but on the other hand one of those places with "staying power" having managed virtually un-changed for it's 15-or-so yrs of existance. Take the Tom Yam soup which comes with toasted dark bread and butter - not very Thai but esxcellent!
Postres lunch menu is reasonably prices (around EUR25) which matches their á la carte list in portion size and quality. The location on Etelä-Esplanadi is excellent. Oh, and they have a Michelin star and they were chosen as the Restaurant of the Year in Finland in 2007.
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Roskapankki 4 years, 11 months ago
This is where the everyman goes to have his beer - or two - or make it ten.
The name of the bar comes from the times of economic depression in early nineties when government formed a holding company to buy off commercial banks' then worthless assets in order to save them from bankruptcy.
Quick Finnish: Roska=Garbage, Pankki=Bank.
The name says it all;-)

There are many shops and boat builders along Veneentekijäntie (engl. boat-builders road) in Lauttasaari. You can find anything from boats of all sizes to crew gear and rigging specialists. Restaurant Blue Peter in HSK marina serves good meals.

leo from Finland wrote about Ringside Golf 4 years, 10 months ago
Ringside is quite an easy course, you have plenty of room to slice on most of the holes with just a few outs. Most of the holes remind me of an airport landing strip. If you like to hit hard with a driver (and who wouldn't?), this is your course. The clubhouse is also good, it's situated on a hill with 9th and 18th hole ending there and you can see them well from the sauna balcony. Burgers are good. Not the most beautiful or intriguing course but it does the job.
Kerava is a bit of a joke in Finland. "Keravan kundi" or "Keravan kolli" means literally "a guy from Kerava" but refers to a lower educational level individual, usually violent, drunken and with a loud mouth.
Actually its a sleepy little residential town with very few reasons to visit for a tourist. Probably a much nicer town to live in what its reputation might suggest.
jjlaine from Finland wrote about Linnunlaulu 4 years, 8 months ago
I believe Linnunlaulu Cafe has the best view of all the places in Helsinki where you can get coffee or ice cream. You'll see the Töölö Bay, the sunset, the city further away... But only in the summertime - it's closed most of the year. :/

paavo from Indonesia wrote about Digelius Recordshop 4 years, 8 months ago
Excellent recort shop for folk, ethnic and jazz music. Good selection of vinyls and CD's. The owner is a known figure in the collector/music scene in Helsinki and a very nice guy.
Digelius has been in operation since 1971 and going stronger than ever. I heartly recommend, even if you have no intention to buy anything - the atmosphere is one of a kind!
Helsinki is a real party town, much more so than major European cities. Most c;lubs stay iopen until 4 am, and it is not uncommon to party until that time. In the fall every company organizes a christmas party on one of the weekends and th clubs can be realy full.
karolina from Finland wrote about Boom Restaurant 5 years ago
If there is anything good to be said about
this restaurant, it's the fact that it has set
the lowest point on the scale of my dining experiences.
Dull, unappealing food in equally unappealing settings,
unless you're into the eighties cruise boats type of furnishings,
wall-to-wall carpet with undefined stains on it etc.
Rather go and grab a burger, at least that's "honest" food.
psalmi from Finland wrote about Roskapankki 5 years ago
Description says it all, Roskapankki is a place with cheap beer and atmosphere according to it. So if you like to get stuck on the floor due to all the poured beer and don't mind the shards of glass everywhere on the floor, Roskapankki is the place to go for cheap beer in Kallio.
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Finnish National Archive 4 years, 11 months ago
Very cool building with beautiful study. Admission is free. There's a very nice cafe (in the summer) up stairs/above the main building.
Virtually no tourists. Even the locals don't no the place exists, let alone that you actually can go there to visit.
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Cafe Tamminiemi 4 years, 11 months ago
This beautiful 19th Century building houses the best Cafe in Helsinki. Cakes are delicious and the atmosphere is fantastic.
There are lots to do around Tamminiemiemi besides sipping coffee: there's the city art museum next door, former president Kekkonen's museum just around the corner and the beautiful outdoor museum island of Seurasaari nearby.
This hetero friendly gay bar / night club is an institution in Helsinki's nightlife. There's a sweaty dance floor in the basement, where they play mostly mainstream dance hits, and a very drunken bar on the street level. Don't go if you can't handle very drunk finns.
Lost & Found stays open until 4am every day. Ques can be quite long after midnight.
Kurk is pretty close to Helsinki and the green fee is not that bad, check out the rates from the link below. You can also buy tickets (pelilippu) from the web quite cheap. The course has its share of forest, water and hills and is a joy to play. If you're a regular and know the course, occasional blind shot over the trees on a dogleg can get you into good position for an eagle.. if you get it right.
jussi from Finland wrote about Hotel Kamp 4 years, 10 months ago
Findland's (and whole Scandinavia's?) only 5-star hotel is located by the Esplanadi park in Helsinki city centre. In the summertime there's a terrace with people sipping wine and watching the life in the city. Not my kind of place but some like go and enjoy good service and drinks in the Kämp Club (an open bar on the 2nd floor).
jussi from Finland wrote about Savoy Theatre 4 years, 10 months ago
To me, Savoy is a theater and a stage of many interesting performs. The gigs, movies and plays I've seen in Savoy haven't been mainstream which is a bit surprising considering Savoy's long history: it's great that a place with history still keeps making new things and doesn't rely on its glorious past only. Eating at the famous restaurant under the same name is still on my to do list.
Vegemesta is a vegan/vegetarian fast food joint. They sell hamburgers with soy beefs & such for 4-6 euros, but also falafel. It works both as lunch & night snack place. They don't have alcohol license, but they are situated in Kallio on a street famous for cheap pubs.
Part of Nuuksio natural park, Luukki offers several small lakes and some tens of kilometres well kept trails and tracks in varied forest nature. An excellent place to take outdoor exercises all year round, about 30 minutes by bus from Helsinki.
jussi from Finland wrote about Kivenlahti Rock 4 years, 8 months ago
Kivenlahti Rock is a summer starter! It is conveniently located within easy reach from the capital area and as such makes it easy to try out if one is up to yet another festival summer. ;-) This festival is not huge nor full of international top artists - instead it has a village-like friendly atmosphere (although the after-party clubs may not be the best places to after the gigs).
paavo from Indonesia wrote about Lammassaari 4 years, 8 months ago
This is what makes Helsinki so cool:
Lammassaari (Finnish for Lamb Island) is in the city but at the same time 1000 miles away. It's an island, nature preservation area and a popular bird watching spot. You'll need your hiking- or rubber - boots as the only way to get there is by dock boards.
Essential thing to do in Helsinki - in my opinion. Helps you to appreciate our great city much more.
Haltiala is the north most part of Central Park in Helsinki. There is a large forested area, vast areas of cultivated land, and the Haltiala farm with cows, in summertime also sheeps, pigs, and some other animals. Also a nice cafe to stay for a while and to feel like being in 100% countryside.
leo from Finland wrote about Don Corleone 4 years, 7 months ago
A great place to stop for some italian food in a refreshingly authentic decor. Perhaps not the place to go for a long dinner, but a great alternative to just grabbing some pizza/bread/whatever from one of those fast food franchises nearby.
leo from Finland wrote about Cafe Mellsten 4 years, 7 months ago
Cafe Mellsten is the meeting point for everyone nearby in Haukilahti, it's a great place to start your day during weekends. Relax in the sun on the terrace and enjoy home made cinnamon buns while looking at the sea and listening to waves hitting the shore. A cup of coffee or beer depending on your activities last night top the enjoyment.
HS from Finland wrote about Suomenlinna 4 years, 6 months ago
Suomenlinna is one of Unesco´s World Heritage site and it´s one district of Helsinki. There goes a ferry from main market square to Suomenlinna many times a day. During summer time it´s a very popular picnic place. Grab your friends with you and buy some food and go to Suomenlinna to enjoy it´s unique atmosphere. It´s very much worth of visiting, actually must- see-thing in Helsinki.
HS from Finland wrote about Don Corleone 4 years, 6 months ago
This is a small Italian restaurant situated in the 1st floor of Kamppi shopping centre. It´s almost all the time full, but people don´t sit there for ages, so you get a table after short time queueing. Pastas are very delicious, but try also other food.
If you are wondering when to visit Helsinki, visit during the summer. Winter is dark, cold, wet and long. Not that there won't be some occasional extremely nice winter days with snow, but generally you should aim for the summer unless you are a definite winter fan.
If you have an iPhone, you can get the free eat.fi application which recommends you great eating places nearby based on your GPS-position. The interface is in english but most of the content in finnish. However, you can still define for example 'italian' food and get an idea of the rating from the graphical representation. :)
maaritti from Finland wrote about Restaurant Copacabana (prev. La Bodega) 3 years, 5 months ago
Great steaks with great pricing! To try, go every day between 16-17 and you get two main courses for the price of one. My favorite was the "Mixed meats skewer" during the old La Bodega-days but I bet there are a lot of equally good alternatives today.

It might be a surprise for you, but there's a bit more to developing TripSay.com than just visiting amazing places around the globe.
Fortunately, when not visiting amazing places around the world, the disco ball, cocktail arcade cabinet, Arkham Horror (with all expansions) and Nintendo DSi among other things help make it a bit more tolerable...
One of the biggest malls in Finland. In this modern shopping complex you can find whatever you want, if it is not high fashion or hand-made specialties. It also includes restaurants, banks, etc.
Next to "Leppävaara" train station. The trains A, E, L, S, U, and Y from Helsinki stop here.

Cafe Tammiemi, or Tamminiementien kahvila, and adjacent Villa Angelica, are charming singularities compared to any other cafe in Helsinki. Authentic atmosphere and delicious homemade pastries in romantic and hearty surroundings.
jussi from Finland wrote about Suvisaaristo 4 years, 8 months ago
Suvisaaristo is nowadays so fully built that it is difficult to find any hiking trails anymore. I know of only one. It's one of my favorite hikes during spring and fall when the coastal nature changes from dead winter to lively summer or vice versa.
6hill from Finland wrote about Vuosaari Golf 4 years, 8 months ago
A links style course undergoing massive renovation over a few years, now complete with the customary deep bunkers and hillsides full of heather. The fairways are quite narrow, so yells of "FORE!" are the usual muzak. Windy, but pleasantly so, and something quite different in terms of golfing experience.

They started to build the stadium in 1934 and it took 4 years to get it ready. In 1990-94 they renovated it and now days there are 40 000 seats in stead of 70 000 standing places.
Someone has said that this is the most beautiful olympic stadium in the world. Well, maybe it is, if you compare to the new ugly things, but I would say I have seen more beautiful than this. Still, it's an interesting thing in Finland's history and the tower is nice.

HS from Finland wrote about Accessorize 4 years, 5 months ago
This shop is situated in the Forum shopping centre, in Helsinki city centre. You find here beautiful jewelleries, bags (quite expensive in my opinion), small purses, some shoes and clothes for children. Check out this shop at sales time. I have found here cheap jewelleries and small purses.
A down to earth gym with emphasis on free weights. Easy to walk in if want to train when traveling. No mandatory memberships or yearly invoices or other crap like that. Reasonably priced.
On the flip side the gym is quite small and somewhat dark and doesn't provide the latest equipment. ;-)
The food is good and well worth its price. Like any upmarket place, you should really eat both entrées and desserts, otherwise you'll walk away hungry. If you are more than 2 people or visiting during the weekend you need to book ahead. The waiters are young and seem to not know very much about the food or the wines.
