The best bookstore in helsinki, situated in the smaller stockmann building. It has sofas you can sit down and read as well.
Tänään Jari Litmanen allekirjoittaa oman kirjan
Story is over: new owners come on October, now most shelves are empty.
The bookshop built by Alvar Aalto is definitely a must in Helsinki!
the place you dream of when you think bookstore. It's not a hurried place, but one that speaks of leisurely reads and great books.
Lots of English books.
One of the bigger bookstores in Helsinki. Includes also a selection of books in original language.
Postcards, notebooks and art & office supplies can be found downstairs in the basement. There is also a tunnel connecting Akateeminen to Stockmann.
Great range of books, magazines & newspapers. Many in English & good selection of Finnish design books
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.
Great service and awesome atmosphere.
Cool architecture and relaxing atmosphere.
Cafés, books and atmosphere...feels nice.
ahhhh sketchbooks aahhh 🎨🎨🎨

Amazing Library. High quality books and stunning Service.
it's hard to find the desirable book by title - they even use computers but with no reason - no exact shelf etc
ft is hidden from customers, software of i-pads is locked
Must and best in town.
One of my favourite bookstores.. in the world! Whenever I'm in Helsinki, I pay Akateeminen a visit.
Easily the best bookstore in Finland. The fantasy section is awesome!
Stadin siisteimmät maksuttomat WCt
The place to visit if you need a book. Lots of English books as well.
Opening hours: Weekdays 9 – 21 (Oulu 9 – 20); Saturdays 9 – 18; Sundays 12 – 18
Best and largest book store in Helsinki. Remember to try out also the second floor Cafe.
No lines on 3rd floor cashiers!
Great selection of literature in English.
The new childrens department in the 2nd floor is nice. Also visit the larger comics dep!
Best bookstore in Finland.
Kirjojenrakastajan Taivaan esikartano. Lukematon määrä lukemattomia kirjoja.
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.
The best selection of sci-fi and fantasy books in town!
2 out of 3 elevators are KONE originals from 1969.
Toinen kerros, ammattikirjallisuudessa: "Digimakupaloja -100 päivää online dialogia Fazerilla" -ostamalla tuet SOS Lapsikylien toimintaa.
Still one of the best and biggest book stores in northern Europe.
Great service. I was advised to change my book to another so that I understand the full story (Margaret Atwood).
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.)
The selection is absolutely adorable – take your time to wonder through nonfiction departments on 2nd and 3rd floors.
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.
Best map and travel guide store in Helsinki!
На третьем этаже появилась интересная фотоэкспозиция, посвящённая 150-летию Сибелиуса и не только
Кто рисует - внизу на -1 классный отдел с промаркерами и ручками.
Мой любимый книжный - огромный выбор книг на английском и прекрасное здание, спроектированное Аалто. Есть все комиксы про муми-троллей:)
Действительно большой книжный. Правда выбор детских книг оказался скуднее, нежели в книжном Берлина.
