I found out about this from My Love From Another Star. 

It's nice to see a  photo of one outside of the show. I wouldn't mind doing that with my bf. :3

Yes, it's about 200 meters from Kauppatori market place, near Uspenski Cathedral. The street address Meritullintori 2 Helsinki is quite near to it.
