The bustling Market Square in Helsinki is not only where traders
set up shop selling food and various other goods, but it is also
the central meeting point of the city, sandwiched between the sea
and a row of impressive historic buildings which include the City
Hall, the Swedish Embassy and the Presidential Palace. Trams and
waterbuses converge on the square, where visitors gather to watch
the changing of the bulkily clad guard at the Palace and admire the
Havis Amanda mermaid statue at the west end of the Square in front
of Esplanade Park.
