If you like to swim naked and are from a country like Canada, where this only happens in lakes at night then you will love this place. I felt like I was part of some secret all-female society, swimming naked and listening to the sound of water and Finnish bouncing off the walls. If only once in your life...

This is my favorite swimming hall in Helsinki. I've been there numerous times during the past 10 years, both 1st and 2nd floor. If I want to just swim, I go to the 1st floor, and if I'm with a friend, I definitely want to go to the 2nd floor and enjoy all the saunas and the wonderful cafeteria. I... More

This place is definitely what I would call 'surreal but nice'. I am normally so shy but overcame my inhibitions and went swimming only wearing my goggles! For someone who hasn't even gone topless on the beach before, I really surprised myself. I then sat in the steam room followed by being served a cool drink. This place has to... More

Big swimming pool, two sauna(1'floor), relaxing area wooden sauna and other wellbeing treatment(2' floor) All these on an authentic Finnish sauna environment. NB: sauna is for men or women only, check the right day in advance

For a minimal €5, attended the all male Saturday night sauna and swimming session. Spotlessly clean, an unchlorinated pool and a wonderful restful atmosphere. Probably one of the best sauna experiences I've had in over 30 years of having saunas around the world. What was so great was the wonderfully hot sauna followed by a cooling off in the swimming...

One of my abolute favorite places to relax in Helsinki is the Yrjönkatu Swimming Hall. It has a unique atmosphere, like going to a different time-zone and different place. It is the best place to go with your friends - or alone - and just enjoy life. The elements are all there - a hot wood-heated sauna, a lovely spa... More

I've visited this beautiful swimming hall for years. I've loved it. For women it has been a private refuge , a sanctuary away from prying eyes where you can really forget yourself and focus on relaxing. That´s the only place in Finland where you can swim without a bathing suit if you so choose, (most women there do, it´s the... More

They have seperate nights for men and women.....my husband told me that everyone was naked......gulp.....but when in Rome etc.....so my costume stayed in my bag and it was actually very liberating! The water is not chlorinated which was lovely. Afterwards you can have a snooze on a bed and order food and drinks if you so wish. I really enjoyed... More
