TORI QUARTERS – THE NEW OLD TOWN
Welcome to the Tori Quarters, the historical centre of Helsinki where the heart of the old town meets the new buzz of the city. Located right next to the sea, between the Market Square and Senate Square, Tori Quarters enable encounters between old and new; travellers and locals; east and west as well as city administration and the local citizens.The historical buildings of Tori quarters, used for administration offices for over 40 years are now being renovated, opening up new spaces for new businesses and Helsinki-dwellers and travellers alike.
Tori Quarters is a place for us all to transform our capital city into a more courageous, more exciting and more open Helsinki. To keep the quarters vivid, the Tori Quarters project also produces events, rents out empty spaces to interesting pop up events and acts as a setting and an enabler for new urban culture. To hear the hottest tips on where to go and what to see, take a look at the Visitor's Guide online. The Tori Quarters main events will be posted online in English – find them in our News section.
