Which places are worth visiting?
Founded in the 18th century, the kings and nobles of Finland at that time loved to hang around in the park, strolling or sitting in the sun. This park is actually only a road, and it is located on the south side of the square in front of the Central Station. Because of the dense shade on both sides of the road, it has become the most popular promenade in Helsinki. There are many shops and restaurants on both sides of the park.
