Uimastadion or Swimming stadium is an establishment among Helsinki summer sites. It was originally built for the Helsinki summer olympics far back in time, and even if it has an old-world-feel to it, it is exactly because of this that is has such charm. The stadium has a large - 50-meter - open-air swimming pool, a jump tower, and two... More

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.

A great place to enjoy a sunny day, sauna and outdoor swimming. Olympic size pool as well as kids pool and also jumping tower (from 1 to 10 meters). You can have a picnic on the lawn or buy stuff from the kiosk or cafe. Only a few minutes walk from city center. Closed during winter season.

The Finns have done well to maximise use of facilities built for the '52 Olympics and subsequently. This pool offers diving platforms for brave little kids and 2 saunas for men (not sure about the women's section). Lockers can be hired for 50c which is refunded upon leaving. Very child-friendly, clean and orderly. At busy times lanes can be congested... More

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".
