“Interesting History”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

This place shows the history of Finland at both winter and summer olympic games. There a display or olympics torches and some medals. You can take a lift to the top of the tower and get a great view of the city but there is a fee to use the lift.

“Iconic stadium, hard seats!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

Came here for an athletics meeting. The seats were very hard, so bring a jumper or something to sit on. The stadium is in need of some modernisation, which I believe it is doing.

The stadium is well worth a visit though, as it is an iconic one, and it is great when there is a full stadium watching an event.

One of the most famous landmarks of Helsinki and it shouldn't be missed. Easy to get to by tram. Tower with spectacular views.

“Interesting location”

The stadium and surrounding area have great information about the 1952 Olympics. Take the elevator to the top of the tower.
