Long Description:
Esplanadi park is located in the heart of Helsinki, being a big green area between the two streets constituting Esplanadi; Pohjoisesplanadi (Finnish for North Esplanade) and Eteläesplanadi (Finnish for South Esplanade).

The bandstand is located close to the Market Square (Kauppatori), in front of Cafe Kappeli.

On the marker placed on the bandstand, one can read:

Architect Valter Jung / Architectural office Jung&Jung, completed in 1939. The construction of the bandstand is part of the Olympic history of Helsinki. The new structure was built to improve the tourist services on the Kappeliesplanadi, as well as enhance the northern edge of the park.
