Helsinki hosted the Olympic summer games in 1952 and now you can go on top of the stadium tower! You have a great view of Helsinki from there.
I heard that when the stadium was built the height of the tower was the equivalent of the Javelin World Record. Don't know whether it's true though...
A trip up the tower costs 2€.
Climb the Olympic tower to get a gorgeous view of Helsinki and the Gulf of Finland. The tower-top is actually quite narrow, I dont think you could fit in more than 10-12 ppl in there.
It is free of charge with Helsinki card.
