swimming and the beach

by Merylu

Please tell me about the beach in Helsinki or near the Helsinki.
I swim where I visit during my travel,,,
so is it possible to swim in the North Europe in the end of Augast???
I wonder,,,if possible it must be cold,,, I suppose.

Re: swimming and the beach

Hietaranta Beach is probably the most popular here, you can get there by half an hour walking or by a bus from the center. Yes, it is possible to swim there in the end of August as the sea is not frozen yet, and anyway, is some spots in Helsinki you can swim all year around even if the sea is frozen, they just make hole in the ice.

There is a beach just in the center of the city on a Uunisaari island, local people usually bath here as well as in Hietaranta, north of the city center. You can get to Uunisaari by a motorcraft that goes from kaivopuisto park seaside walk. Pihlajasaari island has more beaches, these are a bit further on the sea, but still relatively close and the transport here was at least before from where Carusel Cafe is situated, haf a kilometre from Kaivopuisto park to the west.

End of august should be fine for swimming, weather permitting of course.

Travel Tips for Helsinki

Russian visa

by yumyum

If you need to get a Russian tourist visa, I can recommend this company. It's where I got mine in August 05 and they organise the invitation etc. They speak English. The price depends on your nationality and on how fast you need it. Just bring your passport and a photo. They have the forms etc.

The location is very near the Russian consulate.

Helsinki sunrise


Luckily the sunrise in winter is quite late, but even so, I was the only one outside enjoying it for a while. I climbed right to the top deck and stood there freezing but quite alone and happy with this beautiful sight.

Helsinki is daughter of Baltic

by kindretspiri

Sea is one of great things there is in Helsinki. Summer time it will cool the air and winter it might "bite" you. The views are amazing. Walk along the sea is one of the greatest things which you can do. You will find the sea easily and there are lot of paths which you can take and walk. Try :D

In summertime, take a boat...

by paulmacn

In summertime, take a boat trip around the bay of Helsinki and listen to the guide talk about the interesting history of the city. In wintertime, stay inside as much as possible as it gets really cold here. The nightlife, especially bars like Teattrei. Great music, friendly people and a really fun place to be.

Helsinki Tip

by Jeppe

June 12-14 2000 was very rainy weather in Helsinki. It was guite cold when we start dancing at the street. It was raining, but it wasn't normal water. It was frozen... I will remember that weather very long time... ;c)

Actually it wasn't bother me so much, but i just think about those... who weared little bikines, they really feel freece. Any way after carneval they said that, it was very fresh to dance and quite warm, when they start it.
