The Yrjönkadun Uimahalli is truly great. Its early twentieth century architecture is kind on the eye but the very best of it is the possibility (not obligatory) to swim nude, the saunas and the massage beds one can get! A nice trip on a cold Helsinki morning!

This was the highlight of my time in Helsinki. It was relaxing and a unique cultural experience. I did struggle to find the entrance but apart from that it was great. I wish I had taken the time and paid the money to access the second level and cafe. Do be warned though. Everyone swims breaststroke. I imagine this would... More

Naked swimming pool (you can also wear swimsuit but most people go naked). The pool is a bit small but nice atmosphere and beautiful building. Can be quite crowded.

We went here on a Saturday when it was men only, and this was quite an experience. There was a bit of a wait to use the second floor, which gives you a private "room" with a bed and changing area and access to the entire sauna. There are three saunas on the second floor - wood, steam, and electric... More

Notice: men and women rotate every other day. Get ready to swim and bath naked. Venue is straight from ancient Greece. High ceiling, massive columns and a balcony surrounding the downstairs.

If you want to experience something different in Helsinki this is a place to go. The building is very beautiful, like an old bath. You can try different types of saunas, swim, order drinks and just enjoy the atmosphere. Especially during the cold winter days, this is a wonderful way to pass time and relax with a group of friends.

Relaxed feeling, beautiful atmosphere. Be prepared to that you're allowed to swim without a swimming suit / bikini. Of course, different opening hours for women & men.

If you are looking for a traditional place in Helsinki where to go swimming, then this is your place. The price is decent and the sauna is excellent. The atmosphere is relaxed and really encourages you to just enjoy the bath.
