Aleksanterinkatu is a street in Helsinki, Finland, which begins near the Presidential Palace and goes on to meet the main and longest street called Mannerheimintie in the Finnish city. Walking along the street, you will come across several famous buildings in Helsinki such as the Finnish main office of the Nordea bank, Ritarihuone (the seat of Finnish nobility),  the main building of the University of Helsinki, the Helsinki Cathedral, and the Stockmann department store. The street was initially named as Suurkatu but was later renamed as Aleksanterinkatu after the emperor’s death to honor him. Walking along Aleksanterinkatu is one of the best things to do in Helsinki during Christmas as the street gets lit up with several brilliant lights.
