Forum is one of the most famous shopping center in downtown Helsinki. It's big and a renovation has started. They're going to build it bigger and more beautiful inside the building. More shops and restaurants are going to fit in. Forum was established 1985 so it's pretty old. The location is perfect and I really recommend this shopping center for almost all kind of shopping, enjoy!
The Forum is the main mall in Helsinki. It's a pretty standard mall - it has a variety of different stores selling a variety of things and even some food courts - just like a typical mall you would find back home (in the USA at least).
This isn't really a place to get souvenirs or anything, but you will find a lot of stuff that the locals buy.
This is a great shopping centre with close to 100 shops, restaurants, cafes, under same roof.
Dont miss my tip of the APOLLO bar/café in the Forum shopping centre.
