It is a long time ago now since the Olympic Games were held in Helsinki, but if you are a sports buff or into nostalgia then you may enjoy visiting the pool. If you are pressed for time, then maybe you should consider your priorities.

Stadikka is the place to be on warm summer days. The changing rooms and pool area are clean. And there's plenty of place around the pools for sunbathing. Such a nice place to have "in the middle of the city".

It is a quite a walk to get here from the city centre and even the closest tram stop. It can get extremely busy during peak hours, and watch out for the seagulls stealing your food!

The dressing rooms and saunas are from a different age, but efficient nevertheless. The swimming pools can get very crowded, but it's nice to have an opportunity to come and swim in the middle of Helsinki. A separate area is reserved for waterslides, where children...More
