The old Stockmann building

Even for those who know the city pretty well Helsinki still holds some surprises from time to time. One of those places is Kiseleffin Talo (The Kiselef House) at Senatintori.

The entrance looks like that to any other building on the square. But if you go through you will find yourself in a beautiful old passage. In fact this building functioned as the first Stockmann store before they moved further up the street.

Today you find several fine small boutiques on the two levels. In the middle a cozy café invites guest for a cup of coffee or tea. Places right in one of the busiest areas of Helsinki you will never find this place too crowded or loud.

Come and pay it a visit!
