    The best bookstore in helsinki, situated in the smaller stockmann building. It has sofas you can sit down and read as well.

    Helsinki’s biggest bookstore is another building designed by Alvar Aalto and naturally has a large selection of books about him - as well as any other imaginable subject.

    Even if you don't need to buy a book, it's worth a visit for its architecture.

    it's hard to find the desirable book by title - they even use computers but with no reason - no exact shelf etc

    The Art department of Akateeminen kirjakauppa is an infinite source of inspiration. The Store is designed by famous Finnish architect Alvar Aalto so even if you’re not into books it’s worth visiting.

    Izzie Zahorian · September 30, 2012
  • Jacopo C.

    On the negative: not exactly the best deals but on the positive: you can find most of the books you might be looking for and the staff is just great.

    Great service. I was advised to change my book to another so that I understand the full story (Margaret Atwood).

  • Joni

    Beware of the prices of English-language books though. (Example: "LP: South America on a Shoestring" costs 38€ here, while on bookdepository.co.uk it's 16€, incl. shipping.)

    Joni · February 7, 2011
  • Joni

    The selection is absolutely adorable – take your time to wonder through nonfiction departments on 2nd and 3rd floors.

    Joni · February 7, 2011

    For sure, the best place to find the best book in Finland!

    Sit back in one of those cosy armchairs downstairs on a Friday afternoon, leaf through some books or just watch people beginning their weekends.

    Действительно большой книжный. Правда выбор детских книг оказался скуднее, нежели в книжном Берлина.
