Does anyone know what this tree/giant shrub is called?

Not sure about this one either. I don't think I've seen one of these yet. I may be able to ask someone at the Kumpula Botanical Garden here in Helsinki if we can't find any answers here on permies.

Here's that link; it displays properly if you disable 'smilies' before you post:

It looks like Prunus to me; some kind of wild cherry?

From the pictures I've seen, it doesn't look like a wild cherry. The berries on my pics are too round and are a little translucent.

Pin cherries (Prunus pennsylvanica) are round and translucent, but this doesn't quite look like a pin cherry. But the bark and leaves do scream Prunus.
