    Although decent, service is not what it used to be. Good selection of international magazines and books in Swedish.

    After re-decorating, it's not the same anymore. It's leaner, cleaner looks lack the old-school appeal the place was known for for decades.

    It's designed by Alvar Aalto, but that's about it. It's really a regular bookstore.

    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.

    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.

    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.)
