Why is the inessive case used in this situation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/annika_a

Käydä takes either the inessive or the adessive when used for "going somewhere and coming back".

So käydä Ruotsissa, käydä kaupassa, käydä Tampereella (some specific places take the adessive -- it's sometimes even hard for native speakers to remember which smaller ones do), käydä matkalla.

For a lot of detail of which one to use, see http://www.kielitoimistonohjepankki.fi/ohje/476.

Yup, it's correct if you are speaking to several people or being very polite to one or several, and it's accepted here.
