Helsinki metro is simple to use, safe at any hour, clean and has multilingual signs and announcements. You can transport your bike too. Helsinki is very international place with high level safety.

Fast and reliable. Finally we have the metro extension and new stations. Lauttasaari and Espoo are now easier to reach. Stylish and clean new stations, some with interesting lightning.
