Kauppatori's cobblestone square is a great place to buy fresh flowers, fish and vegetables. Enjoy old-fashioned Finnish Eskimo ice cream or one of the renowned meat pasties or doughnuts. Don't miss the daily changing of the Guard at the Presidential Palace. In the center of the square stands an obelisk topped by a two-headed bronze eagle; this is Keisarinnankivi, the Czarina's stone, erected in 1835 to honour the visit of Czarina Alexandra. See the 1908 naked mermaid that caused quite a stir, but is now an important symbol of Helsinki.
