Kauppa & Senaatintori; Market & Senate’s Squares English The Senate’s Square:
The best place for the picturesque photographs and a ‘fika’ by the waterfront. We, RéanArtists, love to sit and daydream after a long day of sightseeing. With the Cathedral and the Council hall near by, it is the perfect place for sitting down on a summer afternoon. Enjoying some local strawberries and nordic cinnamon buns. Helsinki’s Senate’s square hosts a long market with stalls full of souvenirs, local food and goods. This spot in Helsinki draws tourists and locals to mingle and enjoy the summer breeze and overlooking islands by the port.
Designed by the world-famous pioneering architect, Alvar Aalto, this place is worth at least taking a photo portrait with your camera stick. It is a renowned landmark for the modest skyline scenery by the lagoon in Helsinki. The modern, clean aesthetics have become cult drivers within Finnish design, close by is also the lovely Hesperia Park and the old Public Helsinki House, which hosts a number of free exhibitions about the city.
