Unfortunately this stadium was under renovation during my visit. You could tell that it would have been an impressive site when it was originally built. Statues of famous Finnish runners are outside the stadium promenade. When the renovation is finally finished it would be worth...More

It was closed, tower and stadium for construction, but as other suggest it has interesting history. When WWII broke out he 1940 Olympics were canceled because the NAzis were invading this part of the world. It did host the 1952 olympics, during the cold war.

If you are not into sports, then visit the Botanical Gardens nearby instead of the stadium. However, if you do decide to visit the stadium, then a piece of advice: read some of its hidtory before the visit.

This stadium was famous for being the site of the Helsinki Olympics game. A lot of history is attached to this place. It is fairly big with a holding of around 40000 spectators today. I did not get much impressed with this place.

Hello. The Helsinki Olympic Stadium is closed for the whole year 2017 because of the huge renovation. Unfortunately visitors can see the stadium only outside behind the fences.
