Record shops in Helsinki

Helsinki’s coolest record shops can be found on Viiskulma (Five Corners), a veritable Bermuda Triangle of world music. Digelius (Laivurinrinne 2) has a fantastic collection of rare jazz albums, Eronen (Laivurinrinne 2) sells soul and reggae. 

Another cluster of record shops is located around the Hakaniemi and Kallio districts. Check out Black & White (Toinen linja 1), Jazz & Soul (Toinen linja 1), Hippie Shake Records (Hämeentie 1) and Goofin Records (Hämeentie 46). 

Classical music lovers should try Fuga (Mannerheimintie 13a B).
