If you arrive to Helsinki by sea this square will be the first thing you'll see. It is also a nice spot to enjoy a cup of coffee early in the summer morning. Lots of locals do that too because of the nice atmosphere there. Facing out to sea are Helsinki City Hall, the Swedish Embassy and the Presidential Palace. One notable feature of the Market is the old Market Hall on the south shore, the first of its kind in Finland and opened in 1889.
