What a great day we had watching the wonderful Brazilian samba carnival around Senate Square. Free entertainment that occurs every year.

Great place to start your tour around Helsinki. Right here there are multiple free tours daily so you can just join one.

Fairly impressive square, lovely Georgian buildings surrounding it and the Finish Cathedral towering over it. Loads of seagulls so watch you don't get pooped on.... worth visiting while your in Helsinki of course but no need to stay long.

It was so busy on the day we were in Helsinki that the tour bus could not even find a place to let us out to look at the square and church. The church itself is impressive on the outside, for sure. Helsinki in general...More

Good place to people watch and relax after a long walk. Close to stand alone shops, ferry station & malls.

Main Square in Helsinki quite nice with the white Cathedral up the stairs and some lovely buildings around it, a statue of Alexander 11 in the middle.

Nothing else beside the cathedral. Go have a look if you have the time. There is not much to see or do in Helsinki.
