“Nothing Special”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 2, 2013 via mobile

The Central Railway Station (Rautatieasema) is very centrally located in the heart of Helsinki. Eventhough the building looks really attractive from outside, there is nothing special to see and do inside.

“nothing special”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2013

I dont think railway station is anything what a tourist would like to see. It's pretty much a normal railway station filled up with kiosks.

“NOT TOO MUCH INSIDE BUT ATTRACTIVE BUILDING OUTSIDE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 15, 2013

We diden't use The Railway Station of Helsinki to travel .We only just see it as an attraction.
The building has a different character, with the twin statue at the front entrance.
Some small shops of flowers to welcome those who arrived, fresh fruits,card-postals
and tour-guides,chocolates, refreshments and cigarets.

“Lenin”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 10, 2013

Lenin set off from here when he was returning to Russia to get the revolution underway. His statue is still outside the St Petersburg station where he arrived. Great clock tower and statues - and apparently it is pretty safe as no one has died in a rail accident there
