Love wondering through this very old railways staton. It is the hub of Helskinki train transfers and the fast Allegro goes from here to St Petersburg

Classic European train station. We Americans really do not know a great train station because we've torn almost all of them all down. Grand Central in NYC, Union in DC, 30th St in Philly. This compares with the grand stations in London, Paris & every place else in Europe.

It's a really busy train station, but if you have a chance, stop and take a look at the beautiful exterior and interior design and architecture. It's well worth a quick visit.

There is really nothing special about this place. It is a train station with a few shops. The building is nice from the exterior but the inside is boring . We felt the price of items there was very high. A small bottle of water is 3 euros.

This is the transport heart of Helsinki. You can get trains, metro, airport trains, trams and buses from here. The building is more interesting architecturally from the outside than the inside. One thing I did like about it is the 24-hour Supermarket which had everything and was great value for money.

Thank fugree
