In each city I travel to, I like to find a pool to continue my work out routine even while travelling. I chose this pool for its central location, but if I return to Helsinki I will definitely search out a different pool even if it means having to travel further. I think if it had been mostly Finnish men... More

The main Uimhalle - swimming pool - in Helsinki, near Kampi in the towncentre, has alternate days for male and female. The swimming is purposeful, ie those with something to achieve or prove, but can also be relaxed. I prefer the latter. Swim naked (quite natural in Finland, unlike Ango-Saxon countries) or with your bathing costume ('cozzies' in Australian slang),... More

This swimingpool is situated in the center of Helsinki and one of the oldest. Women and men have separate swiminghours and because of this swimming naked is perfectly allright. The atmosphere is peaceful and nice. Worth trying!

Wonderful Art Deco swimming pool and saunas (choice of 2 saunas - warm and very hot). Some days are women only, others men-only, so check before you go. Facilities are very very clean. No swimsuits allowed in sauna, and swimsuits optional in pool (but in practice everyone was naked and they prefer it that way for hygiene reasons!). The sensation... More

When visiting Helsinki be sure to visit this beautiful art deco swimming pool that takes you right back in history; this is what public pools in the Nordic countries were once like. Men and women bathe on separate days and you can swim naked if you wish. The saunas a wooden heated, as they should be. For an extra price,... More

This is the place to go if you like to sense the history, the golden slow-moving days of the past. Good sauna experience as well.

Came here for a quick swim and chose wooden sauna among 6 other types they have. Tuesdays and Thursdays are men only days, you do get to swim naked, wonderful stuff.

Very oldschool swimming hall where you can swim in lines and have the possibility to go to two different saunas. There are men-days and women-days.
