Nice place to spend time, to observe people, to have a pint on the second floor. Shopping is interesting too!

Signage in English were helpful. The station was easy to get around. Could use a cash machine for those coming from Russia and in need of local currency-Euros.

It´s a normal station but it has a good kiosk with good magazines where you can buy the rally guide and there is a Burguer King inside, one of the cheapest place to eat. Cheers

Very, very good. The bad thing that it has not enough cafes. I was searching for a place to drink in, but haven't found any suitable in railway station.

One of the most beautiful stations I've ever seen! Don't just walk through it but look carefully, inside and out, including the ticket hall - and look up or you'll miss half of it. And don't miss the 'giants' outside as well.

This is important landmark of Helsinki, and I visit there at least once per week. I like its architecture and atmosphere. However, sometimes you have to be very careful there. Go to the ticket office, and visit also in old restaurant that is nowadays huge Burger King. Yes, world is changing and this railway station too. Maybe you can find... More

It is a bit of an odd building. It's like a hybrid of old architecture with new. The information centre is there and there is some restaurants and cafes. The menus are writtten in Finnish and Russian. There are some nice big halls. It's good to have a look around. The bus to and from the airport stops here too.

This is the central station where most of the bus, trams, and trains connect to. Most importantly, you will also find the airport express bus that goes to and from the airport.

OK, it's a railway station but the style is wonderful. A small building, by international big city standards, it is well worth a visit. To my uneducated eye it looked 'Art Deco' but I later read it was 'Art Nouveau'. Whatever the labels, it's everso nice ! Apparently it was voted 'One of the worlds most beautiful railway stations' by... More
