Search for antique treasures in Ullanlinna, the southern-most city district of Helsinki. Enjoy the thrill of combing the shops of this upmarket but also very down-to-earth neighborhood.

Whether you are a serious collector or just want a vintage item as a talking point for the home, you’ll find a superb range of objects from a number of different eras. You may even discover a rare piece during your trip!

Take your time browsing the many stores and markets and strike up a conversation with some of the dealers if you want any specialist advice about a potential purchase. At Fasaani Antik, find an extensive range of furniture styles, including peasant and French styles as well as kitchenware, crystal glassware, evening gowns and jewelry from the early to mid-20th century. Meanwhile, Galerie Donner is a specialist dealer in silver, antique furniture and objects of art from the early 18th century.
