    Olympic stadium

    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€.

    Helsinki Stadium tower

    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.

    It is the stadium that hosted the Helsinki Olympic games in 1952.
    It hosts now also the sport's finnish museum.
    If you have time it is worth a visit.

    Great to be here and to know the home of Paavo Nurmi! If you do not know him, please, ask for the "internet"...

    Good overall view from the 72m high tower. You will get a good overall view. 10FIM, open around the year.
    So the Olympics took place here in 1952.
