Outside the statue of Finnish Legend Paavo Nurmi can still be seen, the distance runner known as...More
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

This notable sports complex is surrounding by other sporting facilities in a residential area – it's nice to see a spot dedicated to sport that is not situated kilometers out of town. It seems to be well used and integrated into city life, and is...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.

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.
