Helsinki Rautatentori is a heritage central station, I find this better than Copenhagen or Stockholm central Station, it's well maintained and has a good shopping complex underneath, it is very safe and has bus and tram connectivity

Location is excellent, in the very centre. Some shopping centres nearby. 24 hours supermarket nearby. Macdonald nearby. ))) Luggage room for 6 euro (seems a little bit expansive). And gypsy-women - dirty, looking for smth - seems not safety.

We came in via Kemi, after almost a 12 hour trip. Trip was excellent, station was clean and tidy. Easy to get around, and its not small. Gives you room to move.

My second trip to Helsinki and a great train network from the airport directly to the city center at the central railway station. From here, one can take the city teams to multiple locations across the city so it’s very convenient.

The level of English in Helsinki is very high. If you can speak English then you can get along very easily in all tourist areas as well on transport.
