There is nothing special about this train station. Outside, it looks very large, inside there are the normal news kiosks and coffee stands. Nothing special.

Beatiful building with an impressive ceiling. Worth to be visited since it is close to other important Helsinki´s attractions.

Helsinki has the most beautiful station I have ever been too. It's just a joy buying a ticket in the large art nouveau hall. All architecture lovers should really visit it.

This is a good place to start and end any visit to Helsinki. The building is an architectural marvel. In spite of being a very busy terminal it is always clean and feels safe.

The architecture is by Eliel Saarinen, father of Eero Saarinen (who did the Gateway Arch in the US). We enjoyed looking at it - definitely worth... More

Rarely did we have to wait seconds for the next tram/bus. The day pass system gave us the opportunity to cover almost the whole of the city within one day... More
