Nearby is the im­pres­sive Kun­sthalle Helsinki, which doesn’t have its own col­lec­tion but hosts seven or eight ma­jor ex­hi­bi­tions a year. Its fo­cus is con­tem­po­rary art, de­sign and ar­chi­tec­ture, and its spa­cious gal­leries are filled with nat­u­ral light. An ex­hi­bi­tion of work by the late French sculp­tor and painter Niki de Saint Phalle winds up late this month, with a show by Finnish de­signer, artist and film­maker Paola Suho­nen tak­ing the gallery into the new year.

For art of a dif­fer­ent medium, head back to Es­planadi for lunch at Bronda. Founded by cel­e­brated culi­nary duo Tomi Björck and Matti Wik­berg, it fea­tures sky-high ceil­ings and mod­ern fur­nish­ings, and will take you on an un­for­get­table gas­tro­nomic jour­ney. The dishes are in­flu­enced by Spain, Italy and France, but with a dis­tinctly Nordic out­look. In­dulge your­self with the likes of grilled tiger prawns, braised veal cheek and salmon tar­tar.
