Shopping at the store
Because of limited space in the store, we only display some of our online product line. If the item is not found at the store, ask for help from the seller - the product you want may be on the stock side!
The products you want are waiting for you
You can place your order and choose the delivery method "fetch the order at the store"! In this way, you will be assured that the products you order are already waiting for you when you arrive at the store - however, note that the order is handled among other online orders and may not be available for pickup during the same day! We will send a notification upon completion of the order via email, SMS or call. Pickup orders are usually ready for pick up within 2-7 business days. We keep the pick up orders for a week from the order date, after which the order is dismantled and returned to the warehouse.
Bulevardi, the most important cultural street in Helsinki, also has the bookstore Ruslania.
We are delighted to see you and we take your customer relationship seriously.
The bookstore was founded in Helsinki 1986. Ruslania Books Oy is a 100% Finnish family business that imports Russian books, movies, music, and magazines. We also offer Russian and Finnish souvenirs, calendars and quality Russian food and drinks. Our webstore selection also has Estonian books.
Ruslania's business idea is that we keep in our catalogs all books published in Finland that are somehow related to Russia, both fiction and non-fiction. The store has the importer's prices. We also offer our products to libraries and bookshops.
The staff will help you find suitable products, whether it is for gift giving or searching for a particular product from Russia or Finland. We also invite teachers to choose new teaching material and we welcome student groups to a study visit!
The store has a reading corner. We each day brew fresh green tea, which our customers enjoy free of charge. All Ruslania products are new and of high quality. Welcome to explore and shop. Use staff expertise to your advantage and enjoy the bookstore's atmosphere!
