Visited this pool twice in our 4 day trip to Helsinki. With the weather we were blessed with it was a delightful experience. Very reasonable entry fee clean and the pools were warm. We enjoyed the diving boards and the thought of being part of Olympic history

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 can enjoy traveling through tunnels into the pool. Unfortunately this is priced separately. The place... More

After a swim you can go into the sauna. It´s big. Check the opening hours. it is closed in the autumn and... More
